asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that Messrs. Rippers, of Sible Hedingham, find difficulty in maintaining full employment owing to the shortage of timber supplies; if he is satisfied that timber is being equitably distributed; and what have been the results of his efforts to secure further supplies.

Yes, Sir. This matter has been brought to the notice of the Timber Control, who have been able to help Messrs. Rippers to overcome their immediate difficulties. I am satisfied that every effort is being made to distribute the available quantities of timber equitably. With regard to the last part of the Question, it is hoped that a statement will be made very shortly.
