§ Lieut.-Commander Tufnell
asked the President of the Board of Trade if steps can now be taken to increase supplies to 1009W the general public of ordinary household necessities such as pots and pans, nail scissors, haircombs, etc., which are at present almost unobtainable.
§ Mr. Dalton
Yes, Sir. As I informed my hon. Friend the Member for East Willesden (Mr. Hammersley) on 10th February, I am doing everything possible, within the limits imposed by war requirements, to see that supplies of essential goods are maintained.
