asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that the Cattybrook Brick Company, Limited, Almondsbury, Gloucestershire, refuses to provide a canteen for its 98 workers, comprising men, youths, women and girls, many of whom have to travel considerable distances to their work; and if he will take steps to cause this company to provide a canteen.

I understand that there are already messrooms for men and women and that a question has been raised of arrangements for the supply of tea. One of my factory canteen advisers is visiting the works to explain what can be done under Ministry of Food regulations and I hope to hear that the matter is being satisfactorily settled.
