• Short Summary

    Harold Wilson, President of the Board of Trade, announces the end of clothes rationing.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "Goodbye To Coupons - Wilson".

    MS President of the Board of Trade, Harold Wilson (resplendent with moustache and pipe) announces the scrapping of clothes rationing.

    Cataloguer's Note - Wilson is really bad at reading his cue cards and is looking off camera for much of his reading. So much for his later repute as a good broadcaster. - MD
