HC Deb 22 July 1946 vol 425 c293W
97. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the Minister of Supply how many gas cookers are at present held in stock by his Department; how many are earmarked for export; and the number manufactured monthly for his Department during the past 12 months.

Mr. Wilmot

No gas cookers are held in stock by my Department, which places direct orders only for those required for the temporary housing programme. Total production for all purposes is equivalent to an annual rate of about 327,000, of which some 4 per cent. goes for export.
