HC Deb 29 January 1942 vol 377 c932W
Mr. Hannah

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the large quantities of crockery, linen, knives, forks, spoons and other effects, that were stored when hotels were taken over for Government purposes; and now, as such things are urgently needed, will he take steps to make these stores immediately available and so relieve existing pressure and ensure work for the Potteries and other industrial areas in replacing them, when peace is restored?

Captain Waterhouse

I will certainly examine, in consultation with my Noble Friend the Minister of Works and Buildings, the suggestion put forward by my hon. Friend.
