HC Deb 03 December 1946 vol 431 cc38-9W
79. Sir T. Moore

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to provide more household furniture for those setting up house for the first time.

Mr. Marquand

The quantity of Utility furniture allowed to those qualified for it is as large as can be provided from available production. The size of the ration is kept constantly under review, but must be related to the amount of furniture which can be manufactured with the raw materials available.
