§ 1. Mr. REMER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will take steps to find out what are the wages paid by Japanese employers in the Japanese silk trade; and whether he will undertake that there shall be no free imports of Japanese silk unless the Japanese silk manufacturers pay British trade union wages and conditions?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Sir Auckland Geddes)
I will ask my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour whether he can obtain any recent information as to the first part of this question. As regards the second, I have nothing to add to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member on Monday last.
