HC Deb 02 November 1948 vol 457 cc57-8W
113. Mr. Thornton-Kemsley

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware of the shortage of tools in Scotland, especially of tools used in the building trade and certain edge tools; and what steps are being taken to increase supplies.

Mr. J. Jones

I was not aware of any general shortage of builders' tools and builders' edge tools in Scotland. If the hon. Member has evidence of a shortage in a particular area, and will let me have details, I will draw the manufacturers' attention to it.
