§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. Rhodes)
I do not agree that our nylon stockings show any increasing propensity for laddering or that they are of low quality or unsatisfactory.
Is the hon. Gentleman not aware that on this occasion this side of the House agrees with the other side in respect of these nylon stockings? Will he reconsider the matter?
§ Mrs. Mann
Is my hon. Friend aware that nylon repair shops are opening up all over Great Britain and that they contradict the statement he has just made? Will he do something to improve the quality, and will he note particularly that the nylons being produced by reputable first-class firms are highly unsatisfactory?
§ Mr. Rhodes
I wish to refute that statement. British nylon stockings are as good as any in the world.
