HC Deb 22 March 1948 vol 448 c298W
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.
