HC Deb 28 January 1947 vol 432 c156W
Mr. Sharp

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action he proposes taking to make available increased allocations of shirting material for the manufacture and sale of men's shirts in this country; and whether he will encourage manufacturers to make better provision for the larger man who is rapidly becoming shirtless.

Sir S. Cripps

Arrangements have already been made for an increased production of shirtings which will, I hope, ensure a substantial improvement in supplies during the coming year. The answer to the second part of thee Question is, "Yes, Sir."
