HC Deb 21 January 1941 vol 368 cc61-2W
Captain Plugge

asked the Secretary to the Treasury whether in view of the fur- ther need for living harder and cutting spending, he will be more detailed as to what should be eliminated from normal spending, and what articles of domestic use should be eliminated or curtailed?

Captain Crookshank

I think it is best to leave it to the good sense and patriotism of each member of the public to decide how best he or she can spend less and save more.
