HC Deb 10 November 1942 vol 383 cc2231-2
8. Mr. Colman

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in connection with his undertaking to encourage the fitting of more glass substitutes in bomb-damaged houses in order to save artificial light, he will investigate the effect of the 25 per cent. quota on the sales of this material imposed under the Lace Directions of 1st June, 1942, with a view to making increased supplies more readily available?

Mr. Dalton

I have recently issued a general licence permitting glass replacement fabric made of lace or lace net to be supphed without restriction, provided that it is certified as suitable for that purpose by the Ministry of Works and Planning.
