1939.
Clothing: Information collected from retailers indicated that at 31st January, 1957, the
average level of retail prices of clothing of the kinds generally thought by the working-class families
was -9 points lower than at 31st December, 1956, and 181% higher than at 1939. This increase was
due to increases in the retail prices of Shirts and Gents' Shoes and decreases in the retail prices of
Gents' Hats, Knickers Ladies' Hats and Khaki Drill.
All Others : There were decreases in the retail prices of Saucepans and Plates, and an increase in
the retail price of Frying Pans. This resulted in a decrease of 6-3 points on the figure for 31st December,
1956, and 110% on the figure for 1939.
All Items: If the average changes in the cost of all the foregoing items are combined in accord-
ance with their relative importance in the 1939 working-class family expenditure, the resultant general
average increase at 31st January, 1957, was the same as at 31st December, 1956, and 194% higher than
at 1939.
