HC Deb 02 May 1950 vol 474 c175W
77. Mr. Haire

asked the President of of the Board of Trade what proportion of the moquettes manufactured in this country find their way to the British furniture industry; and if he will consider increasing the supply in view of the public demand for this type of furniture covering.

Mr. H. Wilson

I regret that the information asked for by my hon. Friend is not available. These materials are in good demand for exports, and supplies of British moquettes to furniture manufacturers will increase as production increases. There are plentiful supplies of alternative materials.
