asked the Minister of Food to what extent the experiment of transferring local food offices to the Ministry of Labour or the Ministry of National Insurance, so that the work may be carried out under one roof in the interest of convenience and economy, is to be carried out in Scotland as well as in England, and where.

Of the 46 offices in Great Britain selected for the experiment, seven are in Scotland. The work of the four food offices at Clydebank, Irvine, Largs, and Peterhead will be carried out by the local offices of the Ministry of National Insurance and that of the three food offices, Motherwell, Alexandria and Alloa, by the local employment exchanges.
