HC Deb 25 November 1952 vol 508 c26W
64. Mrs. Braddock

asked the President of the Board of Trade what explanation he has to give of the sudden and acute shortage of nylon stockings in this country.

Mr. H. Strauss

The average weekly deliveries of nylon stockings to the home market last month were 11 per cent. less than in the second quarter of this year, when supplies were plentiful. The decrease was accounted for by a welcome recovery in exports which must continue to have first call on our production.
