HC Deb 30 January 1947 vol 432 c244W
Mr. Nutting

asked the Minister of Labour what is the average percentage decrease or increase in labour, over 1939 figures, in manufacturing trades where the retail selling price is controlled: and those where, it is not controlled.

Mr. Isaacs

The available statistics of employment do not distinguish separately from the rest all those manufacturing industries where the retail selling price of the product is controlled. It is, therefore, regretted that the information asked for cannot be given.
