§ 11. Mrs. Jean Mann
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will direct a bonus issue of nylons to shopkeepers throughout Britain during the Christmas season.
Mr. H. Wilson
No, Sir. I do not control the distribution of nylon stockings, and it is for the manufacturers to plan their home market deliveries as they think best.
Although the shortage of nylons is extremely serious, as we all realise, due to the fact that we have to export so many of them, I think my hon. Friend is under-estimating the fairly considerable number of nylons supplied to the home market this year.
