§ Mr. Wilmot
About 10,000 tons, including imports of 500 tons, were available in 1946. It was hoped to increase this to about 13,000 tons this year, including imports of some 2,000 tons, but fuel difficulties may make it impossible to reach this target.
§ Sir Waldron Smithers
Is the Minister aware that it is said that there are some supplies in the country, and that the farmers who want this wire very urgently for baling hay and straw cannot get permits to buy it?
