HC Deb 22 April 1947 vol 436 c84W
61. Mr. Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade what increase there has been in the production of vacuum flasks recently; and what allocations are being made to agricultural workers.

Mr. Belcher

The production of vacuum flasks of all makes is now running at a rate about 30 per cent. higher than that for the second half of 1946. 15,000 flasks per month are being allocated to agricultural workers under the "Thermos" priority scheme.
