HC Deb 30 January 1945 vol 407 c1290W
Major Gates

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the number of persons employed on footwear repair service in Prestwich; the names and addresses of premises where such services are provided; the estimated number of persons to whom such services can be rendered; and the average time taken for such repairs.

Captain Waterhouse

My Regional Officer reported last month that the average waiting period for footwear repairs in Prestwich was 14 days. This is not an unreasonable time in present circumstances. I have called for a further report on the other points to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers and will communicate the result to him.
