HC Deb 08 December 1949 vol 470 c164W
19. Colonel Gomme-Duncan

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the serious shortage of butchers' protective clothing, he is now in a position to arrange for an early release of an adequate quantity of such clothing and made-up material to the home market.

Mr. H. Wilson:

An improvement in the supply of this class of clothing depends upon an increase in the production of the drill and similar cloths from which it is made. Every practicable step is being taken to increase the output of these cloths.
