HC Deb 11 March 1948 vol 448 cc164-5W
Mr. Boardman

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the large stocks of certain types of foreign made furniture now lying in warehouses in this country and for which there is no effective demand; and whether he will consider reducing the docket value of this particular furniture to encourage its disposal.

Mr. H. Wilson

The level of demand for all types of utility furniture is kept constantly under review. I see no reason at present for reducing the unit value of any kinds of imported utility furniture.
