§ 78. Mr. Edward Evans
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of men's rubber Wellington boots in Beccles and district; and, in view of the importance of an adequate supply to the agricultural community, if he will arrange for increased supplies.
§ Mr. Belcher
Available supplies of men's Wellington boots should be sufficient to meet the essential needs of agricultural workers, and I have taken special steps to ensure suitable distribution. If my hon. Friend will give me further details of the difficulties in the Beccles district, I will look into them.
