§ 23. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is 532 aware of the shortage of mohair; and what steps are being taken to augment the supply.
Mr. H. Wilson
I am informed that there is no shortage of mohair, and, consequently, the second part of the Question does not arise.
§ Mr. Freeman
If I send my right hon. Friend details of a case in Newport in which perambulators for babies have been held up for three months for want of this material, will he look into this case?
Yes, I shall certainly be prepared to look into it, but I am informed by the trade that they do not consider mohair is in short supply.
