HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 cc233-4W
93. Mr. Thurtle

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to say what adjustments he is making in the permitted prices of utility furniture, consequent on the increased cost of materials.

Mr. H. Wilson

I have signed an Order, of which details will be published tomorrow, increasing the maximum prices of utility upholstered furniture. As regards other utility furniture, the manufacturers' federation is collecting evidence to show how production costs have increased since current maximum prices were fixed.
