HC Deb 03 November 1919 vol 120 cc1106-7
33. Mr. T. THOMSON

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions, whether he is prepared to dispose of the whole or part of the surplus war stores of personal or household use by means of Government retail stores, so as to enable small householders to secure the benefit of these sales?


The difficulties involved in setting up a retail organisation, which would necessarily be of a temporary character, render it impracticable to adopt the suggestion made by ray hon. Friend.
