HC Deb 16 December 1948 vol 459 c199W
Mr. Sharp

asked the President of the Board of Trade what decision has been reached on the continuance of the voluntary limitation of advertising.

Mr. H. Wilson

My right hon. and learned Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer and I have discussed the future of the present scheme with representatives of the Federation of British Industries Advertising Committee and it has been agreed that voluntary limitation will be continued after the expiry of the present scheme at the end of February next with the same general purpose as the present scheme but with some modifications in its details. I understand that the Federation of British Industries will circulate details of these modifications to participants in the scheme and will make them available to the Press.
