HC Deb 11 February 1947 vol 433 c43W
84. Mr. Symonds

asked the President of the Board of Trade why retailers holding stocks of dishcloth cotton are forbidden by his Department to sell it; and if he will authorise its release for sale forthwith.

Mr. Belcher

I do not know of any provision for which the Board of Trade is responsible which forbids retailers to sell dishcloth cotton. If my hon. Friend will give me further information about the problem he has in mind, I will make inquiries.
