§ Mr. Younger
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of gloves and mittens for trawler fishermen in Grimsby; and whether he will arrange fur an adequate supply to be sent there in view of the increased number of men now going to sea.
§ Sir S. Cripps
This matter was raised last summer, and special measures were taken to see that the necessary gloves were made available to fishermen. I was not aware that this arrangement had proved inadequate, but I will certainly look into the matter.
