HC Deb 01 April 1952 vol 498 cc114-5W
74. Mr. Burden

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the allocation of nylon yarn to hosiery manufacturers is based on the amount they have exported; and what steps are taken to check the returns given by each manufacturer.

Mr. H. Strauss

Allocations of nylon yarn to stocking manufacturers have in the past been determined principally by their exports of nylon stockings and the next allocation will be made wholly by reference to the value of those exports. Manufacturers' records are examined from time to time by our inspectors.
