asked the Minister of Food if he is aware of the prolonged shortage of all classes of soap in the Sittingbourne district; and whether he will take steps to remedy the position.

I am informed that there has not been a prolonged shortage of all types of soap in the Sittingbourne area, although deliveries have been somewhat delayed as a result of the fuel crisis. Because of this it has been arranged that unused period 10 coupons should be valid in period 11, 27th April to 25th May. There has recently been a shortage of toilet and household soap but flakes and powders are in fairly good supply.
