HC Deb 14 March 1950 vol 472 cc47-8W
79. Mr. Lindsay

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he anticipates that extra supplies of nylon stockings will be available for the home market.

Mr. Rhodes

The home market is already receiving increased supplies. Since June of last year the supply of nylon stockings to the home market has more than doubled. I cannot give a firm estimate for future supplies, which will depend on the availability of nylon yarn, production of which is, however, increasing.
