HC Deb 22 May 1947 vol 437 c288W
87. Sir P. Macdonald

asked the Minister of Works whether he is aware of the difficulties being placed in the way of doormakers in the Isle of Wight as regards the supply of raw materials; and whether, in view of the fact that it is economically preferable for the timber to be sent to the Isle of Wight for doormaking rather than to have the complete doors transported there, he will give instructions for the present system to be discontinued.

Mr. Durbin

The grade of timber especially suited to the mass production of panelled doors, is in very short supply, and I have asked the industry to advise me how to ensure its most economical use.
