HC Deb 13 July 1943 vol 391 c41W
Mr. R. J. Taylor

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there has been any substantial increase of alarm clocks available to the public, particularly in the North-East?

Mr. Dalton

10,000 alarm clocks have arrived in this country from North America and a further 50,000 are now on their way. On the recommendation of the Trades Union Congress, I have decided that railway workers and road passenger transport workers shall have first call on these limited supplies.
