HC Deb 05 December 1939 vol 355 cc474-5W
Mr. Mander

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware of the shortage of knitting wools required for the purposes of making comforts for the fighting services; and whether he will take steps to authorise mills to manufacture a larger proportion of this material in view of the widespread requirements throughout the country?

Mr. Burgin

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to the hon. and gallant Member for Cardiff, South (Colonel A. Evans) on 30th November, in which I stated that arrangements have already been made for special allotments of wool to spinners to enable knitting-wool to be made available for supplying comforts for the fighting forces.
