§ Mr. Swingler
asked the Minister of Supply what steps are being taken to improve the supply of alarm clocks; and how the present production of alarm clocks compares with that in 1938.
§ Mr. Wilmot
We have actively encouraged a British alarm clock industry and two factories are already making alarm clocks on a considerable and rising scale; a further two factories will start this year. Supplies from these sources are being augmented by imports. There was no British production in 1938.
