HC Deb 29 May 1946 vol 423 cc1156-7
54. Dr. Comyns

asked the Minister of Food what measures he has taken to prevent the wastage of food unloaded at the Royal Albert Dock, following upon the letter sent to his Department by the hon. Member for Silvertown.

Mr. Strachey

A detailed reply has already been sent to my hon. Friend by my colleague the Parliamentary Secretary.

Dr. Comyns

While thanking my hon. Friend for the written reply which I received subsequent to this Question being put on the Order Paper, may I ask him whether he will ensure that there will be more adequate supervision, by the officials of his Ministry, of the unloading of food ships?

Mr. Strachey

I am willing to look into that, but I am sure that the supervision is very adequate.
