HC Deb 12 April 1948 vol 449 c52W
Commander Noble

asked the President of the Board of Trade what proportion of utility shirts are made with the collar attached; and why such production is considered economical for the user.

Mr. H. Wilson

I have no figures on this matter, which is left to the discretion of the shirt markers. No coupons are chargeable for a collar attached to a shirt and this tends to deter the trade from making shirts with collars attached.
