HC Deb 12 April 1948 vol 449 c40W
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.
