HC Deb 29 October 1946 vol 428 c86W
Mr. Bossom

asked the President of the Board of Trade if the Government are taking steps to import from France and other countries the glue essential to the manufacture of water paint and distemper.

Sir S. Cripps

Private traders are being encouraged to bring in maximum supplies of glue, and to that end licences to import are granted freely. The quantities at present available from overseas, including France, are relatively insignificant.
