Mr. David Adams
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that kitchen equipments for British Restaurants in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, promised a considerable time ago, are not yet delivered; and whether deliveries can now be expedited?
Major Lloyd George
Kitchen equipment has been obtained through the Ministry for only one of the British Restaurants in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and this has been delivered. I understand however, that there has been some delay in the case of certain equipment which was ordered from manufacturers direct. I am making inquiries of the firms concerned with a view to expediting delivery.
