asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the central catering system has been introduced for officers serving in county class cruisers and His Majesty s Ship "York"; and, if so, whether the staffs of officers' stewards and cooks have been pooled, or Whether each mess retains its own staff?

Experimental trial of a central catering system for officers is being carried out in His Majesty's Ship "York" and certain other ships. In the system under trial, cooking is centralised and staffs of officers' cooks are pooled for ward-room, gull-room and warrant officers, but each mess retains its own stewards.
