HC Deb 16 November 1950 vol 480 c192W
125. Mr. Houghton

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can give any estimate of the total expenditure on the manufacture of fireworks this year.

Mr. H. Wilson

No. The Board of Trade does not require manufacturers of fireworks to render returns of their current production, either by quantity or value, and I regret, therefore, that I cannot give any estimate of the manufacturing costs of these goods.
