Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce – in the House of Commons on 4th April 1944.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the President if the Board of Trade whether he is aware of existing dissatisfaction in regard to the present quality of safety-razor blades; and whether, in the interests of economy, no will arrange for their improvement.
The supply of the special steel used for razor blades is limited by demands for urgent war production, but I am glad to say that I have had very few complaints about the quality of war-time blades.
Will the Minister consider a specific complaint?
Yes, but, so far, the public have been doing very well in making their blades last longer to help the war effort.
Is the Minister aware that there are many complaints from prisoners of war about blades sent out by the Red Cross?
I repeat that I have had very few complaints from any quarter.
