§ 74. Sir H. Williams
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the effect on the earnings of the employees of carpet dealers of the reduction on the distributors' margins prescribed by Statutory Instruments Nos. 1704 and 1707; and what action he proposes to take to safeguard their interests.
§ Mr. Rhodes
I see no reason why the orders reducing the maximum margins of carpet retailers should have any adverse effect on the earnings of their employees.
