HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c154W
92. Mr. Cuthbert

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the great shortage of woollen undergarments available for young children; and what action he is taking to remedy this state of affairs as their health is being affected.

Mr. Belcher

I am aware that supplies of children's underwear of all types are not yet satisfactory though production was higher last year than in 1945 Exports are being very severely restricted to conserve supplies for home needs and manufacturers are being encouraged to increase their production wherever possible.
