asked the Minister of Food if he is aware that it is impossible to obtain toilet soap suitable for young babies in the Hadleigh district of Essex; and if he will ensure that supplies are sent to this area.

The production of soap was retarded by the fuel shortage and, unfortunately, a certain amount of inconvenience has resulted from consequent delays in delivery to retailers. In the circumstances it may not be possible to find a particular brand of soap in stock at a particular shop, but I am assured that there are reasonable supplies of soap, including toilet soaps suitable for babies, available in the Hadleigh area.
