§ Mr. W. J. Brown
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the high prices now being charged for ladies' handbags, he will now arrange for 1938W the production of a utility handbag at a reasonable price.
§ Mr. Dalton
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer which I gave him on this subject on 19th December last. Since then, I have taken further steps to encourage the production of the cheaper types of handbags by removing, as from 1st February, the quota restrictions on manufacturers of this class of bag.
