HC Deb 25 July 1944 vol 402 cc582-3
42. Mr. Higgs

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether more wool will be released and on easier terms for knitting, in view of the needs of the Forces and the liberated European populations.

Mr. Dalton

The supply of knitting wool is very limited, and all that is available is already being released in order to meet the home civilian ration, the needs of the Forces and the relief of liberated Europe.

Mr. Higgs

Is the Minister aware that wool is appreciated by the Forces, and that it has a low cost of production? When he has additional supplies will he give the matter his first consideration?

Mr. Dalton

Yes, Sir, as soon as supplies increase I shall be glad to make a further distribution.
