§ 62. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Food what reduction has been made in 142 personnel and expenditure in his Department's office and organisation in Covent Garden Market since 28th November, 1949.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that I am informed that very few people in Covent Garden know of the existence of this office? Would he please keep a record of the officials' times of going in and coming out, because I am informed that there is a tremendous waste of time, personnel, and money in this office, which serves no useful purpose?
§ 63. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Food how many traders at Covent Garden give advice to his Department in an official capacity; and what amount is paid to each as a retaining fee.
