HC Deb 20 April 1950 vol 474 cc298-9
14. Mr. J. Grimston

asked the President of the Board of Trade why best quality English moquettes are being exported while British furniture makers have to rely on supplies of inferior continental moquette.

Mr. H. Wilson

Moquette manufacturers are playing their part in the export drive, and I am glad to say that exports of wool pile fabrics are increasing, but there are some supplies of British moquettes to furniture makers as well as ample quantities of alternative covering materials.
