HC Deb 18 March 1946 vol 420 c297W
124. Mr. Skeffington-Lodge

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of men's bathing trunks in Bedford; and whether he will make early arrangements for an improved supply.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir. The production of bathing trunks, sacrificed during the war to more essential garments, is now getting under way again; but though it is as large as materials will allow, it must be some time before supplies are adequate, either in Bedford or elsewhere.
