§ Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that many holiday camps will be unable to reopen this year unless they are supplied with soft goods, mattresses, etc., to replace the goods taken from them by the Government on requisition during the war; and what steps he proposes to take in this matter.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Yes, Sir. As I stated on 11th February, in answer to the hon. and gallant Members for Flint (Lieut.-Colonel Birch) and Horncastle (Commander Maitland), we are working out plans for dealing with the problem of re-equipment of hotels and boarding houses. We propose to treat holiday camps in the same way, but I would emphasise once again that it will only be possible to consider the minimum needs of establishments having priority claims.
