HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 cc192-3W
128. Captain Orr

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in order to simplify the Utility Scheme, he will arrange to fix one maximum price for rayon or cotton for all dress fabrics.

Mr. H. Wilson

No. But the hon. and gallant Member will have seen from the answer which I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Bolton, East (Mr. Booth) on 14th November that the Cotton and the Rayon Utility Scheme Committees have recommended a number of broader specifications for dress cloths, and that these specifications are being discussed with the organisations concerned in the wholesale trade and the garment industry.
