HC Deb 30 January 1956 vol 548 c79W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the possibility of a shortage of cans suitable for the preserving of gooseberries of the 1956 crop; and what action he is taking in the matter.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

No. Supplies of tinplate for the home trade are expected to be adequate this year. But if my hon. Friend has a particular case in mind I shall be happy to look into it.
