HC Deb 14 March 1950 vol 472 c44W
75. Mr. Stevens

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, having regard to the need for reducing costs of administration and to the fact that conditions of trade under controls are abnormal, he will postpone the Census of Distribution sine die or, failing that, drastically simplify it.

Mr. Rhodes

No. I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Birmingham, Northfield (Mr. Blackburn) on 9th March.
