I have been asked to reply. The serious shortage of rubber and other materials has made it necessary to give priority in the supply of certain sports goods and equipment to the Services, schools, and other sports organisations. As regards supplies for the Army, the War Office have undertaken to keep within a definite allocation, and I understand that in their view centralised buying and distribution is the only practicable method of rationing the limited supplies among the various units.
