HC Deb 27 January 1947 vol 432 cc131-2W
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.

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.
