76. Mr. Austin

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will tabulate the ranges of goods contained in the utility commodity groups; and whether he has in mind an extension of the utility factor as an instrument of price control.

Mr. Bottomley

The utility scheme now covers goods in the following categories: Bedding, blankets, cloth, clothing, footwear, furniture and household textiles. The answer to the second part of the Question is in the negative.
