§ Mr. Hepworth
asked the President of the Board of Trade to what extent there exist any manufactured articles of clothing for which there is no appreciable demand; and whether he proposes to unload stocks in such cases?
§ Mr. Dalton
Most of the representations which reach me relate to shortages of clothing rather than to surpluses, as is most natural at this stage of the war. But it is always possible that, from time to time, the production programme may get out of balance. Stocks are kept under constant review, and production is adjusted when necessary.
