HC Deb 01 February 1949 vol 460 c215W
82. Mr. Joynson-Hicks

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the scarcity in West Sussex of men's utility shirts and blue rainproof coats; and what steps he is taking to mitigate the resultant inconvenience to the public.

Mr. Bottomley

There is a general shortage of these garments due to the increased level of cloth exports and I have no information to suggest that the shortage is more acute in West Sussex than elsewhere.
