HC Deb 30 May 1940 vol 361 c676W
Mr. Mort

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that in the town of Swansea and district there is a great shortage of timber; that representations have been made to the hon. Member for Swansea, East, by employers and employés in the building and woodworking industries; and whether there is any likelihood of the supply being increased?

Mr. H. Morrison

I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer to a similar Question given to him by my predecessor on 21st March. As regards the last part of the Question, I can hold out no hope of the early release of larger quantities of timber than at present.
