asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Food whether he is aware that the change made by Hartismere food office or the catering division of the Ministry of Food in the meat supplier to the aerodrome site in Suffolk, of which he has been privately notified, has resulted in a temporary stoppage in the supply of meat to 800 men and that there is danger of industrial trouble unless the situation is remedied; and whether he will restore the previous arrangement for supply which worked satisfactorily?

From the inquiries so far made, I have been unable to ascertain any reason why the canteen to which my hon. Friend refers should not be adequately provided for by the supplier to whom the catering contractor has been assigned. I am, however, making further inquiries and will communicate with my hon. Friend as soon as possible.
