HC Deb 22 July 1947 vol 440 cc128-9W
Mr. Baker White

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the serious shortage of 325 x 19 motor cycle tyres and tubes in the East Kent area; that owing to this shortage, suppliers are unable to meet the needs of farmworkers, miners and others using motor cycles; and if he will take the necessary steps to have supplies made available.

Sir S. Cripps

Stocks of motor cycle tyres in dealers' hands are lower than usual owing to the recent loss in production, but the position should now gradually improve. Any dealer who cannot obtain supplies from the manufacturers to meet a really important and urgent requirement, should report the facts to the Tyre Manufacturers Conference, 9, Whitehall, London, S.W.I, who will take steps to expedite delivery.
