HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1451W
Mr. Jackson

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he can arrange for a larger supply of rubber boots to be made available in country districts for the use of land workers?

Sir R. Dorman-Smith

I understand that the supply of rubber boots available to the public has been depleted owing to the requisitioning of stocks by the Army authorities, but arrangements are now being made for the importation of substantial quantities of rubber footwear of types used by land workers.
