HC Deb 15 December 1948 vol 459 c154W
88. Mr. D. Marshall

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the strawberry and flower growers of the Tamar Valley are in need of five-prong and six-prong forks; that these forks are unobtainable; and whether he will take immediate action to improve the supply.

Mr. J. Jones

Five- and six-pronged forks are at present being manufactured only on a very small scale. The question of increasing supplies of these forks is now being discussed with the industry.
