§ Sir H. Lucas-Tooth
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware 20W of the prevailing shortage of handkerchiefs; and in view of the risk of infection and the discomfort to individuals, whether he will take action to increase the supplies.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Yes, Sir. I have already arranged to increase supplies from new production and also from surplus Government cloth which is suitable for handkerchiefs.
