§ 82. Mr. C. Poole
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now publish the wholesale and retail profit margins operating in the clothing and 194W boot and shoe industries at the time the recent price reduction was made.
§ Mr. J. Edwards
The reduced maximum margins for utility clothing, utility footwear and utility household textiles that were brought into force on 26th September will be found in Statutory Instruments, 1949, Nos. 1599; 1608 and 1724; and 1920 respectively. The corresponding maximum margins in force immediately prior to 26th September will be found in Statutory Instruments, 1949, Nos. 1132; 206 and 232; and 1311 respectively. I do not think that it is necessary to re-publish the margins in any other way.
