HC Deb 17 December 1945 vol 417 c909
36. Mr. Boardman

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that sub-standard utility cloths are taken out of the utility ranges and sold as general; that these imperfect goods are then sold at prices greatly in excess of the legitimate prices of perfect goods and become subject to purchase tax; and if he will stop this practice.

Sir S. Cripps

No, Sir, but if my hon. Friend will let me have details of any cases he has in mind, I shall be glad to look into them.
