HC Deb 09 October 1946 vol 427 c68W
86. Mr. Harrison

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the stringency of the regulations governing the purchase of ladies' corsets and the length of time that they have been in force, he will now withdraw completely all restrictions on the purchase of these corsets.

Mr. Belcher

There are no restrictions on the purchase of corsets, apart from the special arrangements which are necessary to ensure that surgical corsets are reserved for cases of the most urgent need.
