§ Mr. T. Williams
I have received representations from Norfolk and from other counties about the shortage of ploughshares and points. If my hon. Friend will let me have the name of the agents in North Norfolk he has in mind, I will have inquiries made into their special difficulties. For information as to the steps we are taking to increase supplies of shares and points generally, I would refer my hon. Friend to the replies that I gave to the hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) and to other hon. Members on 27th October.
§ Mr. Turton
Is the Minister aware that notwithstanding the reply he gave a fortnight ago, the points situation is no better in the North of England? May I send the right hon. Gentleman my list, too?
§ Mr. Williams
It may very well be that the position is not a lot better, but the output is about double what it was before the Question was put down.
