HC Deb 26 November 1945 vol 416 c1032W
Mr. Lavers

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the continued shortage of cigarettes on the North-East coast; and, in view of the approach of the festive season, what steps he proposes to take to remedy the shortage.

Sir S. Cripps

I am not aware that cigarettes are in less plentiful supply on the North-East coast than elsewhere. If my hon. Friend will be good enough to send me particulars of any particular district he has in mind I will have inquiries made into the matter.
