HC Deb 28 June 1951 vol 489 cc155-6W
68. Mr. Burden

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will arrange that materials containing wool and fibre, other than animal fibre, shall now be described as woollen mixtures.

Mr. Rhodes:

The Board of Trade have no general powers to prescribe how materials shall be described. Descrip- tions of fabrics in the utility cloth and clothing orders made by the Board of Trade are based on trade usage. We propose, however, to alter the title of the cloth Order at the next convenient opportunity to make clear to those outside the wool industry that woollen and worsted mixture cloths, as well as all-wool cloths, come within the scope of this Order.
