HC Deb 22 May 1947 vol 437 c2512
32. Mr. Percy Wells

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make an allocation of children's summer underwear available in the Faversham Division of Kent.

Sir S. Cripps

Underwear is distributed through the normal trade channels and is not controlled by Board of Trade allocations. I have no reason to suppose that the Faversham Division of Kent is not receiving its proper share of children's summer underwear in relation to available supplies, but if my hon. Friend has evidence to the contrary, I will gladly examine it.

Mr. Wells

Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that these garments were absolutely unobtainable at the date when this Question was put down?

Sir S. Cripps

I hope they are now obtainable.
