§ 66. Mr. John E. Haire
asked the Economic Secretary to the Treasury whether he will increase the allocation of timber to the furniture industry in order to eliminate the prevailing underemployment.
§ The Economic Secretary to the Treasury (Mr. Douģlas Jay)
I regret that, since most of the timber required by the furniture industry can only be bought for hard currencies, allocations must for the time being continue to be based on the minimum needs of consumers rather than on the capacity of the industry.
