HC Deb 26 January 1948 vol 446 c100W
130. Mr. Piratin

asked the Minister of Works how much of the surplus canteen equipment available after the war from Army units and N.A.A.F.I.'s has been allotted to school canteens, in view of the general shortage of such equipment, and the difficulties which education authorities in particular are having in obtaining it.

Mr. Key

Surplus Army canteen equipment is taken into general stock from which all Government requirements are met and I cannot say how much is used for a particular service. The Navy, Army and Air Force Institutes dispose of their own surplus goods.
