asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the total of vacuum flasks sold on the home market in 1937 and 1938; and what is the total number of glass components for such flasks imported or scheduled for importation in 1946 and 1947, respectively.

It is estimated that before the war between four and five million vacuum flasks were sold on the home market every year. No mare exact figures are available. During 1946 we imported glass components sufficient to make 255,000 vacuum flasks; provision has been made this year for the importation of components to make approximately four times this number.
