HC Deb 27 April 1948 vol 450 c36W
Mr. S. Marshall

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now reconsider the coupon points value in regard to rayon and woollen goods as the stocks in the shops are moving very slowly.

Mr. Wilson

Although stocks of certain types of cloth and clothing, especially for women, are now fairly plentiful, supplies will tend to diminish as cloth exports rise. The position is being carefully watched, but I am not prepared in general to alter coupon rates to deal with purely temporary stock fluctuations.
