HC Deb 12 December 1949 vol 470 c220W
76. Commander Agnew

asked the Minister of Food whether, in view of the fact that the population of Camborne-Redruth greatly exceeds that of Truro, he will reconsider his decision to withdraw the trade side of the food office to Truro, and thus avoid substantial travelling inconvenience to the 620 firms of grocers, butchers, bakers, caterers, milkmen and soap merchants situated in Camborne-Redruth.

Dr. Summerskill

In order to save staff, we are amalgamating the trade work of food offices whenever possible. There is no suitable accommodation in Camborne-Redruth for a district trade office. But while traders will have to correspond with the District Office in Truro they will be able to call at the local food offices in Camborne-Redruth to deposit documents and to make inquiries.
