151. Mr. Vane
asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware of the general shortage of cast-iron rainwater guttering and spouting; and to what extent the estimated shortage in 1947 can be made good by plastic or other substitutes.132W
§ Mr. Wilmot
The supply of these goods is insufficient to meet all demands immediately, but substitute materials are now being extensively used and I have every hope that production will meet requirements in 1947.
