HC Deb 28 July 1943 vol 391 cc1604-5W
Mr. Wootton-Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that miners are unable to go to work in Lancashire pits because they cannot get their clogs repaired; and what steps, in the interests of production, he is taking to meet the deficiency?

Captain Waterhouse

I am not aware that miners are prevented from going to work because they cannot get their clogs repaired, but my right hon. and gallant Friend the Minister of Fuel and Power would be glad to receive any information which my hon. Friend may have regarding such difficulties of miners in Lancashire.
