§ Mr. Tiffany
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the complaints regarding shortage of sports goods for the use of civilians; what percentage of home production is handed over to N.A.A.F.I. for the use of men in the Services; and what is the total value of stock held by that organisation both here and overseas.
§ Mr. Ellis Smith
I am aware that there is still a shortage of sports goods for the use of civilians. For the proportion of supplies distributed through N.A.A.F.I., I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Salisbury (Major Morrison) on 3rd December. The question of the stocks held by N.A.A.F.I. is a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for War.
