asked the President of the Board of Trade the purpose and need of Section 4 of Article 6 of the Limitation of Supplies (Polishes) No. 3 Order (S. R. & O., 1206, of 1943)?

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is meant by the carrying out of a process in connection with Article 6 of the Limitation of Supplies (Polishes) Order (No. 3) S.R. & O., 1206, of 1943?

Waxes are scarce. This Order, therefore, prohibits manufacturers from supplying all wax polishes, except for furniture, floors, footwear and leather. The object of section 4 of article 6 is to prevent a distributor from suggesting, by label or similar device, that the polishes he sells are suitable also for other and less necessary purposes. The expression "the carrying out of a process" used in this article covers any manufacturing operation carried out in making polishes, and is, I am advised, well understood by the trade.
