HC Deb 23 January 1947 vol 432 cc347-8
22. Mr. De la Bère

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in order to save fuel and coal for domestic grates and boilers, he will take steps to ensure an adequate supply of sieves for sifting cinders, since in many parts of the country there are at the present time none available.

Sir S. Cripps

So far as supplies of steel allow, I am doing all I can to maintain the output of these sieves.

Mr. De la Bère

May I ask the right hon. and learned Gentleman whether he is aware that there are large numbers of matters which want sifting and sorting at the Board of Trade, and would he be good enough to confer with the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Fuel and Power, whose advice would be very profitable to him?
