HC Deb 27 February 1948 vol 447 cc374-6W
Mr. S. Marshall

asked the Minister of Works if he is aware that supplies of essential electric equipment is holding up the work of completing the camps at West Drayton for Olympic Games competitors; and if he will see that the necessary supplies are made available without delay.

Mr. A. Henderson

I have been asked to reply. There has been no serious hold up in the supply of essential electrical equipment for West Drayton. A large consignment of general electrical fittings was delivered to the site on 23rd February, bringing deliveries up to 50 per cent. of the total material required, and the remainder is expected very shortly. Delivery of the whole of the electrical cooking apparatus is expected in approximately two weeks time.
