HC Deb 03 December 1951 vol 494 c204W
Mr. J. Morrison

asked the Minister of Supply if he is aware of the increasing difficulty in obtaining deliveries of plain galvanised fencing wire; and if, in his next allocation of materials, he will bear in mind the needs of essential fencing for agriculture and forestry.

Mr. Sandy's

I am aware of the shortage of galvanised fencing wire. Under the new steel allocation scheme the Ministry of Agriculture and the Department of Agriculture for Scotland will issue authorisations for fencing wire for agriculture and forestry.
