HC Deb 03 August 1944 vol 402 c1615W
Mr. Lipson

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the influx of evacuees into a certain area, he will increase the allocation of Exide dry batteries as the present allowance is inadequate to meet the additional demand.

Mr. Dalton

The supply of dry batteries for the civilian population is limited on account of large and vital Service demands, but I am making every effort to see that available supplies are distributed in accordance with local need.
