HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1555W
Mr. Davidson

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings (1) what proportion of equipment for hostel camps in Scotland has been allocated to Scottish furniture manufacturers;

(2) how many Glasgow furniture manufacturers have been invited to tender for the provision of hostel camp equipment during the past six months?

Mr. Hicks

I regret that it is not possible without undue expenditure of labour to obtain the figures which would be necessary to give the hon. Gentleman a full answer. I can say, however, that orders for considerable quantities of furniture for hostel camps in Scotland have been placed with Scottish manufacturers.
