asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is now in a position to make a statement on the provision of extra towel coupons for hairdressers?
I cannot at present add anything to the replies which I gave on 2nd March to my hon. Friends the Members for East Wolverhampton (Mr. Mander) and the Clayton division of Manchester (Mr. Thorneycroft).
May I ask that the right hon. Gentleman should bear in mind the difficulties that hairdressers are experiencing at the present time?
Yes, Sir. I stated in reply to a Supplementary Question on the date mentioned that I am most anxious to do whatever I can to assist hairdressers, but supplies are difficult to obtain.
