HC Deb 02 November 1943 vol 393 cc531-2W
Major Mills

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will arrange for adequate supplies of cord boot laces to be available for men's stout boots for farmworkers, landworkers, bricklayers, etc., as leather laces are now forbidden?

Mr. Dalton

Yes, Sir. I have already made arrangements, in conjunction with my right hon. Friend the Minister of Supply, for adequate supplies of cord laces for men's heavy boots.
