HC Deb 15 October 1945 vol 414 c719W
Mr. E. P. Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now allow men's socks to be made the normal length.

Sir S. Cripps

I am keeping constantly under review the possibility of removing this and other austerity restrictions. I cannot, however, remove the existing restrictions until I am satisfied that yarn supplies are sufficient for the purpose.
