HC Deb 23 May 1947 vol 437 c313W
Mr. Mitchison

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power if he is aware that unless Mr. G. B. Rimmington, the village blacksmith, of The Forge, Cottesbrooke, Northampton, can obtain supplies of washed smithy breeze, he will shortly have to close his forge and deprive the villages of Creaton, Cottesbrooke, Haselbeech and Maidwell of his services as blacksmith and repairer of agricultural implements; and whether he will take steps to avert such a misfortune, which would interfere seriously with agricultural production in the district.

Mr. Shinwell

Arrangements have been made to meet the requirements of Mr. C. B. Rimmington, and I understand that one ton of washed breeze is being delivered to him immediately.
