HC Deb 14 April 1965 vol 710 cc207-8W
Sir D. Kaberry

asked the Minister of Health how many staff and other canteens are established and run in his Department's offices either separately or jointly with others at Government buildings at Lawnswood, Leeds, and at Halton, Leeds; what is the lowest price charged for a midday meal; what is the average price charged; whether those prices represent the economic cost of purchases, preparation, service and rentals; how much profit is made in a year; and how a loss is dealt with in the annual accounts or estimates of his Department.

Mr. Loughlin

Seven of the Ministry's staff are entitled to use the canteen at Lawnswood which is run by the Ministry of Public Building and Works. I understand that my right hon. Friend the Minister of Public Building and Works has written to the hon. Member.
