§ Mr. H. Wilson
Every opportunity has been taken to encourage the fullest possible use of the latest developments in the technique of last-making for children's footwear. Several meetings on this subject have been held this year with the trade organisations concerned. Steps have also been taken to increase supplies of the types of leather specially suitable for the manufacture of children's footwear. The Boot, Shoe and Allied Trades Research Association has, for some time, been carrying out research on lasts for children's footwear, and the industry is making use of the results of this work.
