HC Deb 11 November 1912 vol 43 c1736
80. Sir J. D. REES

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, when a cargo of boards arrives from Norway half planed and half rough, the planed boards are free from, and the rough boards obnoxious to, the National Insurance Act; and whether, seeing that the insurance paid by British employers in respect of employés who plane the rough boards, is practically a bounty in favour of the foreigner, he will say what steps will be taken to place British and foreign labour in this behalf on an equal footing?


I am afraid I cannot add to the reply given by me on 16th October last to a similar question asked by the hon. Member.
