HC Deb 13 February 1945 vol 408 c62W
Mr. Mainwaring

asked the Minister of Food why it is that there is a pronounced shortage of soaps and soap powders in South Wales; and what steps are being taken to remedy the situation.

Mr. Mabane

Deliveries of soap into the South Wales area were heavily curtailed during January owing to difficult weather conditions. The position should have been eased by now, but I am arranging for deliveries to be expedited where necessary.
