74. Mr. E. P. Smith
asked the Minister of Supply if he will take action to remedy the shortage of small mesh wire-netting, hop wire, barbed wire and steel tubing, 1½ in down, from which agriculture is suffering generally.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
My information is that most essential agricultural requirements for these goods are being met. 41W There may, however, be isolated cases of shortages and arrangements are made to make supplies available when information about such shortages is received.
