HC Deb 12 December 1939 vol 355 cc998-9
13. Mr. De la Bère

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is prepared to issue some statement as to which home-manufactured articles are in demand for export so that in cases where this demand was known to exist the public should, as far as possible, refrain from purchasing them and utilise the money they would have spent by lending it to the Government for the successful prosecution of the war?

Mr. Stanley

I will bear in mind my hon. Friend's suggestion.
