HC Deb 06 December 1951 vol 494 c319W
141. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware of the shortage of wire nails in Goole, which is causing delays in packing motor cars for export; and whether he will take immediate action to remedy this.

Mr. Low

There is a general shortage of wire nails. Additional supplies are being made available for the home market by reducing exports. Efforts are also being made to increase supplies of wire from which the nails are made.
