HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 c8W
Commander Douglas Marshall

asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he is aware of the shortage of builders' tools for sale in the shops of South-east Cornwall; and will he give an assurance that an increased supply of these tools will be made available in the near future.

Mr. Wilmot

There is a general shortage of builders' tools, due mainly to insufficient labour in the industry. We are trying hard to improve the supply, and if the hon. and gallant Member will let me have fuller details of the cases to which he refers, I will do all I can to help.
