§ Mr. Lipson
asked the Minister of Food if he will increase the supply of washing powders and soap in the Cheltenham area, as the present shortage is causing great inconvenience, particularly when laundering is done at home and where there are children in the family.
§ Colonel Llewellin
Deliveries of soap during January were curtailed by transport difficulties due to the severe weather. The position has now eased but I have taken steps to expedite deliveries to Cheltenham and other areas known to have been affected.
