HC Deb 10 December 1945 vol 417 c166W
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.
