HC Deb 13 March 1951 vol 485 c141W
86. Mr. Janner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that supplies of hardwearing underpants worn by miners in hot pits are no longer available; and what action he is taking to see that they are again available.

Mr. Rhodes

I am aware that miners are having difficulty in obtaining this special type of underpants. We have already taken action to increase supplies.
