§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if, having regard to the tenfold increase ill the importation of 25 foreign manufactures in recent years, and the necessity for retaining the supremacy of British manufactures, he will afford facility for the consideration of the recent Report by the Board of Trade on Foreign Competition.
§ THE FIRST LORD OF THE TREASURY (Mr. A. J. BALFOUR,) Manchester, E.
I agree with my hon. and gallant Friend that the Report raises matters of great interest, but I think he will concur that the Government are hardly in a position at the present moment to promise any facilities for Debate on these or any other questions outside the important subjects brought before the House.
§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT
I beg to give notice that I shall raise the question on every opportunity. [Laughter.]
