HC Deb 23 March 1943 vol 387 cc1467-8
44. Mr. A. Edwards

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many perambulators have been manufactured during the past month; and how many will be available for sale per week in the future?

Mr. Dalton

The number of perambulators and folders produced in February is estimated at 26,330. I hope that this rate of production will be at least maintained.

Mr. Edwards

Is the Minister aware that since he promised to look into this matter of perambulator supplies the allocation for Middlesbrough has been reduced and the allocation for Scotland has been considerably increased?

Mr. Dalton

I undertook to try to see that justice was done. If my hon. Friend thinks that it has not been done, perhaps he will approach me on the matter.

Mr. Buchanan

Will the Minister take steps to see that these statements about Scotland are also looked into?
