HC Deb 23 February 1948 vol 447 c286W
Lieut.-Colonel Kingsmill

asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that the South-Western Divisional Food Office at Bristol have decided to close the food office at Crewkerne as an independent office; and whether he will reconsider this decision, in view of the hardship which will be occasioned to residents in Crewkerne and district having to go to Chard.

Mr. Strachey

The food offices at Crewkerne, Chard, and Ilminster are being placed under a single food executive officer, thereby saving staff. A food sub-office will, however, be retained at Crewkerne for the convenience of the local residents. The new arrangements should not, therefore, entail any hardship.
