HC Deb 03 December 1931 vol 260 cc1283-4W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs what use is being made of the services of women in connection with the "Buy British" Campaign of the Empire Marketing Board?


No paid appointments, either of men or of women, have been made in connection with the "Buy British" Campaign, but I am happy to say that women throughout the Kingdom, both individually and through various associations, are co-operating enthusiastically with the Empire Marketing Board. Notable instances of such co-operation are the Girl Guides, who have undertaken the local distribution of posters in many areas; the National Federation of Women's Institutes, who have sent a special letter, with posters and special literature, to all women's institutes in England and Wales; and the Scottish Women's Rural Institutes, who have given special facilities for the direct despatch of posters to all their branches.
