HC Deb 31 January 1949 vol 460 c191W
1. Mr. N. Macpherson

asked the Minister of Supply what allocations of fencing wire have been made to the County of Dumfries in the years 1946, 1947 and 1948.

Mr. G. R. Strauss

No specific allocation of fencing wire is made in Scotland. To meet essential agricultural needs, the Department of Agriculture for Scotland, by arrangement with my Department, issue, at their local offices, permits for fencing wire and fencing wire manufacturers accept these permits as a first charge against their production.
