73. Mr. E. P. Smith
asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware that there is a deficiency, both in quantity and quality, of digging spades, forks and horticultural hand-tools in the County of Kent; and if he will take steps to improve the situation.
§ Mr. G. R. Strauss
Increased supplies of these tools are being distributed to the home market. The more important types of agricultural and horticultural tools are normally supplied by reputable firms under a guarantee of quality and any faulty tools are usually replaced.
