§ Major Symonds
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the shortage of stocks of handkerchiefs in the Cambridge area; and if, in the interests of hygiene and health, he will take immediate steps to increase the quota allotted to that area.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Supplies of handkerchiefs throughout the country are necessarily limited by the yarn position. I am, however, having inquiries made, and if these show that there is an undue shortage in the Cambridge area, steps will be taken to get extra supplies.
