HC Deb 11 February 1946 vol 419 cc12-3W
Sir P. Hannon

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the present restrictions on glassware production will be modified or removed, in view of the widespread demand now existing for domestic glassware.

Sir S. Cripps

There are no restrictions on production of the most essential types of glassware, so I presume that the hon. Member is referring to the less essential types and to decorated ware. Restrictions on manufacture and home sales of these goods will shortly be modified so as to limit them only by a requirement that each manufacturer shall export a percentage by value of his production.
