§ 69. Mr. S. Shephard
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that men's braces and suspenders contain little 338W or no elastic; and if he will take steps to make additional supplies of elastic available to manufacturers of these articles.
§ Mr. Belcher
Yes, Sir. Steps have already been taken to increase supplies of elastic for braces, and, as soon as supplies permit, a similar arrangement will be made for suspenders.
