§ Lady Apsley
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the hardship caused to many furnishing companies by compelling them, under the Furniture Order, to sell good furniture at a loss, he will consider modifications of detail from responsible firms and organisations if the facts, of which complaint is made, are laid before his Department.
§ Mr. Dalton
I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer on this subject I gave to my hon. Friend the Member for Stourbridge (Mr. R. Morgan) on 26th September, of which I am sending her a copy. The suggestions made by the trade organisations concerned are now being considered by the Central Price Regulation Committee.
