§ 102. Mr. Bossom
asked the President of the Board of Trade when darning material will be available in Maidstone; and what type of material this will be.
§ Mr. Belcher
Darning wool is generally rather scarce owing to the shortage of labour in worsted spinning, but the supply is now increasing. It is distributed through normal trade channels and I have no information when further supplies will reach Maidstone or of what kind they will be. I have no reason to suppose, however, that Maidstone is not getting its share.
