asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the shortage of sails cloth in Cornwall for maintaining sailing vessels; and if he will take steps to improve the position in the interests of maintaining a trained reserve of sea power.

Mr. H. Wilson

I am not aware of any special shortage of sailcloth in Cornwall, but if the hon. Member will let me have details of any particular case he has in mind I shall be glad to look into the matter.
