HC Deb 01 May 1952 vol 499 c100W
16. Mr. R. Harris

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take action to curtail or modify the Census of Distribution forms issued by his Department under the Statistics of Trade Act, 1947.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

For any future census of distribution fresh forms will be drawn up, with the assistance, in accordance with the usual procedure, of an advisory committee including traders. When and if it becomes necessary to draft fresh forms, I will bear my hon. Friend's suggestion in mind.
