HC Deb 29 January 1948 vol 446 c165W
2. Mr. Erroll

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will publish a list of those industries and commercial pursuits from which new entrants are excluded by reason of allocations of raw materials, rights to trade or supplies being dependent upon performance at some date in the past.

Mr. H. Wilson

No. The information requested is not readily available in suitable form and a number of Departments other than the Board of Trade are concerned. If, however, the hon. Member has in mind any particular industries or commercial activities which come within my field of responsibility, I shall be glad to give him information about the practice in those industries regarding new entrants.
