HC Deb 21 April 1948 vol 449 c141W
47. Mr. McGovern

asked the Minister of Food the reasons for the suspension or discharge of Mr. Thomson, food officer at Glasgow; what has been the result of all the investigations; what is the nature of the charge against Mr. Thomson and if a prosecution has been decided upon.

Dr. Summerskill

Mr. Thomson was suspended from duty pending full investigation into certain irregularities. I cannot say more at present as the Inquiry is not yet complete.
