HC Deb 18 March 1946 vol 420 c296W
117. Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many blankets, sheets and mattresses, respec- tively, have been sent from this country to Europe.

Sir S. Cripps

During the six months July to December, 1945, 156,000 pairs of woollen and 5,000 pairs of cotton blankets were exported to Europe. As sheets and mattresses are not separately recorded in the export statistics, I regret that the information for these commodities is not available.
