HC Deb 24 April 1947 vol 436 c143W
128. Mr. Baldwin

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that there is a shortage of cotton wool, including 1 lb. hospital and B.P.C., in the Leominster division of Herefordshire; and what steps he proposes to take to make an adequate supply available.

Mr. Leonard

No, Sir. I was not aware of a shortage of cotton wool in this Division. Production has suffered because of the recent fuel difficulties, but the improving fuel situation should do much to remedy temporary local shortages.
