70. Mrs. Adamson
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is able 1942 to make a further statement about the supply of perambulators?
§ Mr. Dalton
Yes, Sir. I am glad to say that I have now arranged for an increase in materials sufficient to raise the annual rate of production of perambulators and push chairs, as compared with last year, by more than 30 per cent. It will, of course, be some months before these additional supplies reach the shops, and it is important that full use should continue to be made of second-hand perambulators.
Is my right hon. Friend aware that he has earned the gratitude of the mothers of this country by his policy?
