HC Deb 24 April 1947 vol 436 c1232
25. Mr. Janner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of babies' wear in Leicester; and whether, having regard to the hardship this is causing, particularly in the case of expectant mothers who are preparing for the birth of their first child, he will take steps to remedy this shortage.

Mr. Belcher

Yes, Sir, and every effort is being made to remedy the shortage.

Mr. Janner

Can my hon. Friend say, in view of the very serious shortage that exists in these commodities, when they are likely to be raised to a reasonable standards of production?

Mr. Belcher

I am afraid I cannot say when production will be satisfactory, but every effort is being made to overcome the shortage.
