HC Deb 03 December 1945 vol 416 c1899
95. Mr. Touche

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of wool for knitting winter clothes for children in the Reigate and Redhill district; why supplies are now scarcer than during the war; and will he take steps to increase the supply.

Sir S. Cripps

The shortage is general, although the position is improving. With regard to the second and third parts of the Question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. and gallant Member for Ludlow (Lieut.-Colonel Corbett) on 29th October.
