§ Mr. Piratin
asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the Government subsidy on the collar attached cotton shirt retailed at 9s. 2d.; and what steps he is 156W taking to control the price when the subsidy is removed.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
I assume the hon. Member is referring to the utility shirt with collar attached made from utility cotton cloth Specification No. 3021/3. The subsidy was not on the garment itself but on the cloth used, and amounted to about 1s. 4d. As regards the last part of the Question I would refer him to the reply given to him on 4th May.
