asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Supply (1) what steps are being taken, and in prospect, for the manufacture of synthetic rubber; and what in general is the crude rubber, rubber waste and synthetic rubber position in this country to-day;

(2) whether he will publish the names of the reconstituted Rubber Control Board, with their credentials for the work, and direct their attention to the fact that it has been the studied policy of the new tyre interests to encourage waste and destruction of tyres by every commercial means; what steps are being taken to prevent this and also to make proper use of waste rubber and synthetic rubber?
