asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he is prepared to recommend for release in Scheme B key men in the manufacture of wallpaper, so that there may be greater production of this commodity so necessary for working class homes.

Releases of individual specialists have been secured in Class B. The flow of labour into the industry is satisfactory, but my hon. Friend will appreciate that the rate of production of wallpaper is limited by the quantity of base paper which can be made available. Responsibility for the industry is shortly to be transferred from my Department to the Board of Trade.
