asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that no Edinburgh firms appear on his Department's list of wholesale traders authorised to deal in woollen blankets to meet priority dockets; that this omission is causing much local inconvenience and dissatisfaction; and whether he will take immediate steps to rectify the matter.

To assist holders of priority dockets to obtain blankets with the least possible delay, supplies to meet these dockets are being directed to a limited number of wholesalers, who have a substantial turnover in these goods. If my hon. Friend will give me details of the difficulties to which he refers, I shall be glad to go further into the matter.
