asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that dealers in utility furniture in Swansea have been informed by the manufacturers that a waiting period of over six months is operating on all orders; and, as this is causing distress amongst people who have waited for years to renew furniture destroyed by enemy action, whether he will expedite the delivery of this furniture?

I am aware that there have been delays in delivery of utility furniture in South Wales. I have taken special steps to stimulate production there and I trust that, as a result, deliveries will soon be speeded up.
