HC Deb 18 August 1919 vol 119 c1885
25. Mr. CLYNES

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will now publish the Report submitted by the Council of Reconstruction, which recommended that effect be given to the suggestion of the Committee on Trade after the War to the effect that steps be taken to prevent competition of goods made by sweated foreign labour with those produced by higher-paid labour in this country; and can he state the action the Government propose to take concerning the recommendation?


I will consider the right hon. Member's proposal. The Government's trade policy will be announced by the Prime Minister.
