43. Sir I. Fraser

asked the Minister of Pensions to what extent the manufacture of artificial limbs and appliances has been held up by fuel or power cuts.

Mr. Blenkinsop

The leg contractors' factory closed down on Wednesday, 12th February, and the arm contractors' factory on Friday, 14th February. Both firms, I am glad to say, resumed work on Friday last, 28th February.
