HC Deb 31 July 1946 vol 426 c198W
109. Mr. Kirby

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that there is a shortage of perambulators for sale in the Liverpool dirtstrict; and if he will take steps to meev [...] life needs of mothers in this respect.

Mr. Marquand

While the rate of supply of perambulators has been increasing steadily and is now up to the rate in 1938, there is still a general shortage in most parts of the country. My right hon. and learned Friend is much concerned by the hardship that this is causing and every effort is being made to overcome manufacturers' production problems. We have no reason to think that retailers in the Liverpool district are not getting their fair share of available supplies.
