18. Lieutenant W. Shepherd

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now consider extending the variety of design permitted in utility furniture production.

Sir S. Cripps

Yes, Sir. My Advisory Committee have been working for some time at a number of new designs. Some new models have already been put into production, and more will be available in the coming months.

Colonel Erroll

Will other types of timber be incorporated in the new designs?

Sir S. Cripps

We intend to use every type of timber we can that is suitable for the furniture.
