HC Deb 06 October 1942 vol 383 c1086W
Lieut.-Commander Tufnell

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the great difficulty that exists in many places in Obtaining supplies of essential household goods, such as towels, sheets, pillow-cases, &c., whereas supplies of clothing, both utility and non-utility, appear to be plentiful; and whether he will take steps to increase the availability of such household goods even if it means to some extent reducing the production of clothing?

Mr. Dalton

The allocation of cotton yarn for the manufacture of certain household textiles has recently been increased, while the production of cloth for clothing of types of which there are good stocks has been curtailed.
