HC Deb 01 December 1920 vol 135 cc1251-2
103. Mr. REMER

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that a sale was made in January, 1920, on approximately the same day as the 470 standards of flooring boards were sold to Messrs. Hillas at £31 per standard; that this sale was made out of the same parcel; and that the prices were £36 and £38 per standard; and whether, if documentary proof is given to him confirming these facts, he will cause a full inquiry to be made into this matter?


I think the hon. Member is mistaken, but I shall be prepared to consider the documents to which he refers, if he cares to send them to me.


As I am not the owner of the documents, will the hon. and gallant Gentleman receive the gentleman to whom they belong?


I shall want some evidence that any desirable issue is likely to come from that. The hon. Member has raised this on a good many occasions. I have been into it very carefully. I think there is no material ground on which I can grant the inquiry he suggests.
