asked the Minister of Supply whether he is aware that the office of the Director of Voluntary Organisations is able to supply cheap wool and other help to those who are knitting for the three combatant Services but not for the Mercantile Marine; and, in view of the fact that civilian sailors are making an almost equal contribution to our war effort, will he arrange for the extension of the same help to those desiring to knit for them?
