HC Deb 06 March 1946 vol 420 cc73-4W
97. Mr. Skeffington

asked the Minister of Food whether, in consultation with the Minister of Labour, he will endeavour to secure additional shop staff for badly bombed areas like Lewisham where there are fewer food shops, so that the strain on. customers and management may be somewhat relieved and the period of daily queuing lessened.

Dr. Summerskill

My right hon. Friend is always glad to give what support he can in matters of this kind, and if my hon. Friend cares to bring particular cases of difficulty to his notice he will see what can be done to help.
