HC Deb 30 January 1945 vol 407 c1289W
Major Peto

asked the President of the Board of Trade why, in view of the acute shortage of children's woollen underwear and pure wool for knitting in this country, woollen underwear of pre-war quality is being exported or put in dumps for export.

Captain Waterhouse

Commercial exports of woollen underwear are less than 1 per cent. of civilian supplies and are confined to the essential needs of certain Colonial territories.
