§ 73. Mr. Spence
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the present shortage of bathing suits; and what steps have been taken to increase supplies.
§ Mr. Belcher
Supplies of hosiery yarn are not good enough to allow of a significant increase in the production of bathing suits without a loss of more essential clothing for the home market or of goods for export. I regret therefore that we can only promise a very limited production of bathing suits this year
