§ 27. Sir P. Hannon
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a statement on the attitude of the Government on the preservation and expansion of individual unit traders in our national economy.
§ Sir S. Cripps
Yes, Sir. The Government believe that the efficient unit shop keeper has a continuing and important role to play in the distributive trade.
§ Sir P. Hannon
Has my right hon. and learned Friend received a communication from the National Chamber of Trade on this subject; and is he giving the suggestions embodied in the communication sympathetic consideration?
