83. Major Lloyd
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware of the lack of attention and inefficiency displayed by the officials concerned with the recent distribution of ration books in the Clarkeston and Netherlee districts of Renfrewshire; that many women had to wait more than three hours before they received attention; and whether he will have investigations made into the matter.
§ Mr. Strachey
Only one complaint of delay at Netherlee was received by the Food Office by telephone. The Food Executive Officer reports that he has visited the distribution centres daily and has found nothing wrong I have, however, ordered a special inquiry to be made and will communicate the result to the hon. and gallant Member.
