HC Deb 05 June 1951 vol 488 c100W
71. Mr. Dodds

asked the President of the Board of Trade if any progress has been made following talks with the trade to increase the supply of children's utility clothing at reasonable prices.

Mr. Rhodes

Following consultation with the trade, new schedules of children's utility apparel are being issued. This should result in a substantial increase in the production of utility garments at controlled prices. These new schedules will show some increases in permitted maximum prices, due almost entirely to increases in the cost of materials, mainly cloth. We have been assured by the representatives of the trade that they will co-operate with the Board in making available an adequate supply of children's utility garments at reasonable prices.
