HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 c54W
Mr. G. White

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that there is a shortage of feeding-bottle teats in Birkenhead and district; and if it is in his power to increase the supply.

Mr. Dalton

As I informed my hon. Friend the Member for North Camberwell (Mr. Manning) on 23rd January, the manufacture of teats is now three times greater than it was last summer, and retailers' stocks are being built up everywhere as rapidly as possible. I have no evidence that Birkenhead and district is receiving less than its fair share of these increased supplies.
