HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c257W
108. Mr. Henderson Stewart

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the Government's decision to insist on concrete floors for new houses, he will now provide additional dockets for the purchase of linoleum or other floor coverings by occupants of new houses in Scotland, where climatic conditions have long been officially recognised, for example, in the higher allowance of domestic coal, as more rigorous than in the south.

Sir S. Cripps

Supplies of linoleum and felt base floor covering are unfortunately still severely limited by the shortage of linseed oil, and I regret that I am unable at present to increase the amount allowed to those who qualify for dockets.
