HC Deb 02 November 1948 vol 457 c58W
Mr. Prescott

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware of the shortage of five-pronged muck forks, particularly among farmers in Lancashire; and what steps he will take to increase the supply.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

Five-pronged forks are at present being manufactured on only a very small scale. The possibility of arranging for substantially increased production is being discussed with the industry.
