HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 cc254-5W
105. Mr. G. Wallace

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that there is a shortage of protective clothing and rubber boots for use by workers in the building industry; and what steps are being taken to improve production.

Sir S. Cripps

I have no information that supplies of protective clothing and industrial rubber boots for workers in the building industry are inadequate, but I will look into any specific difficulty if my hon. Friend will let me have details.
