asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received from the appropriate trade organisations on the bad quality of utility clothing, stockings and household furnishings and equipment; and what action he has taken.
No such representations have been received, and I cannot accept the implication concerning the quality of utility goods.
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that in and near Oldham a number of normal sizes of women's utility underwear are unobtainable; and whether all normal sizes are in fact manufactured in the utility range.
Full ranges of stock sizes of women's utility underwear are being produced. If my hon. Friend would let me have details of the particular sizes and descriptions of garments he has in mind, I would have enquiries made into the supply position in Oldham and district.
