HC Deb 10 March 1942 vol 378 c907
12. Dr. Russell Thomas

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has anything to say in regard to the cornmunication addressed to him by the Southampton Chamber of Commerce recently entitled "The Impact of the War upon the Private Trader" and also about the recommendations contained therein?

Mr. Dalton

I have just received the report to which my hon. Friend refers, and I am considering it. It raises some matters which come within the terms of reference of the Retail Trade Committee, and I am asking this Committee to look into them fully.
