HC Deb 04 March 1946 vol 420 c10
25. Major Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of lamp chimneys in Dorset; and what steps he is taking to remedy this shortage.

Sir S. Cripps

I am looking into this matter and will communicate with the hon. and gallant Member as soon as possible.

Major Digby

Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman bear in mind that there are many people who are entirely dependent upon them?

Sir S. Cripps

I quite appreciate that.

Lieut-Colonel Byers

Will the Government also consider the necessity of bringing electricity to Dorset as quickly as possible?

Sir S. Cripps

That is another question.
