HC Deb 29 April 1947 vol 436 cc215-6W
111. Mr. Wadsworth

asked the Minister of Supply if he will reconsider his decision to withhold supplies of timber for the building of bodies on ex-Service vehicles purchased from his Department in view of the hardship and unemployment caused thereby.

Mr. Leonard

I regret that, owing to the general shortage of supplies of timber, it is not possible at present to make an allocation for this purpose.
