HC Deb 22 October 1945 vol 414 c1671
80. Mr. John Paton

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the prolonged and acute shortage of rubber teats for babies' feeding bottles in the city of Norwich; and if he will take steps to ensure an adequate supply.

Sir S. Cripps

I am aware that there are still some local shortages of these goods, and I have arranged for considerably more rubber to be allocated to the manufacturers. I have also arranged for additional supplies of teats to be sent at once to relieve the shortage in Norwich.
