HC Deb 29 October 1945 vol 415 c15
35. Wing-Commander Millington

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the continued shortage of sanitary towels throughout the country and especially in Chelmsford; and whether he will take all possible steps to remedy the shortage

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir, and I very much regret the grave inconvenience that is caused thereby. All possible steps are being taken to alleviate the present shortage. I will make a further statement on this matter in the course of the next few days.

Sir T. Moore

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that it is only becoming modesty that has prevented more questions on this subject being put?

Sir S. Cripps

I am aware of the very acute shortage. It has been drawn to my attention from many quarters, and I am doing my utmost to try to solve it.
