asked the Minister of Supply and of Aircraft Production if he is aware that the residents of Silvertown, West Ham, have difficulty in obtaining surgical dressings and liquid paraffin; and will he take steps to ensure that reasonable supplies will be available at the earliest opportunity.

:I am not aware of any particular difficulties in Silvertown in the supply of either surgical dressings or liquid paraffin. The production of surgical dressings is now sufficient to meet demand. During the summer there were local shortages, due mainly to large movements of population, but steps have since been taken to remedy this position. Supplies of liquid paraffin are ample for medicinal use.
