asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take the necessary steps to increase the supply of outsize ladies' overalls, cotton, for sale in the Nottingham district, as at present the supplies of this necessary article are only a fraction of the need.

The making of out-sizes is encouraged by allowing manufacturers to charge a higher price to cover the extra cost of cloth and labour involved. Supplies of overalls are not sufficient to meet all requirements, but I have no information that the situation is worse in Nottingham than elsewhere. All practicable steps are being taken to increase the production of overall cloths.
