§ 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.
