HC Deb 27 June 1950 vol 476 c200W
80. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to make a statement on the proposed increases in the maximum prices for the various categories of utility wool clothing.

Mr. Rhodes

The Board of Trade has now made an Order (S.I. 1950 No. 1002) which provides higher maximum prices for a number of utility wool cloths and introduces some new descriptions of utility cloth. Until there have been discussions with the clothing manufacturers, it is not possible to say to what extent these changes will affect utility clothing prices.
