HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 c322W
117. Mr. B. Taylor

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the percentage increase in the price of leather to the boot and shoe repairers consequent upon the withdrawal of the subsidy.

Mr. H. Wilson

The increases vary with the type and quality of leather, but all the available information on the point is being collected with a view to the amending order governing footwear repairs which I hope to make before the end of February.
