HC Deb 05 November 1945 vol 415 c1049W
Colonel Clarke

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider lifting the prohibition on the import of lamp chimneys, in view of the hardship entailed on those living in rural areas where gas and electricity are unobtainable.

Sir S. Cripps

I am not aware of any serious shortage of lamp chimneys which are now produced in this country, but, if the hon. and gallant Member will send me particulars of any cases which he has in mind, I will look into them.
