HC Deb 22 November 1950 vol 481 c60W
97. Mr. G. Ward

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the shortage of small stores, such as ringing plungers for the 300-type telephone, I.R.V. wire and large staples, is interfering with the work of the Post Office Engineering Department; and what steps he is taking to increase supplies.

Mr. Ness Edwards

These shortages of small stores are due to temporary supply difficulties, which, I hope, will soon be overcome.
