HC Deb 24 July 1946 vol 426 c18W
113. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that deliveries of utility furniture are six months in arrears to small country towns, whereas supplies in larger cities exceed demand; and if he will take steps to see the smaller towns receive quicker supplies.

Mr. Belcher

No, Sir. Although delays in delivery of certain classes of utility goods do occur, I have no reason to believe that small towns are on the whole worse off in this respect than larger places. If, however, the hon. Member will let me have details of specific cases of delay, I will have inquiries made.
