§ 8. Sir Irving Albery
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there is available an adequate supply of 469 matches; and what steps have been taken to ensure a fair distribution to householders?
§ Mr. Dalton
Supplies of matches have been maintained at the present level for some time and are, I think, generally sufficient to meet requirements. Supplies to dealers are based on pre-war distribution, modified in accordance with movements of population.
§ Sir I. Albery
What redress has a householder if the retailer he is registered with says that he cannot supply him?
