HC Deb 06 October 1942 vol 383 c1060
29. Mr. Leslie

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the need of raw material for use in price-controlled utility bedding, he will prohibit the sale by auction of military mattresses, and treat such surplus material as salvage for the Ministry of Supply for re-allocation to bonâ-fide manufacturers?

Sir J. Grigg

The sale of military bedding, by auction or otherwise, is already prohibited. Any which is surplus or unfit for re-issue is, if possible, broken down, disinfected and made up into new mattresses. If it is beyond cleansing and disinfecting it is condemned and destroyed.
