HC Deb 01 February 1949 vol 460 c216W
Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take steps to increase the supply of men's corduroy trousers in the slate quarrying districts of Caernarvonshire.

Mr. H. Wilson

These garments are in short supply generally. The Board of Trade do not control distribution, but I am asking suppliers to try to increase deliveries to this area in view of the special needs of the slate workers.
