No officers of the Ministry have made visits, but 10 members of the staff of the London Executive Council visited 131 premises in South-West London following the undertaking given on 8th February to examine the situation in this area about the display of the notice headed "Supply of Glasses". At 50 premises the notice was not already displayed but a copy was accepted voluntarily for display.
