HC Deb 07 December 1920 vol 135 cc1924-5

(by Private Notice) asked the Prime Minister whether the proposals contained in the Dyestuffs (Import Regulation) Bill have been submitted to the Allies in conformity with Articles C (1) and D of the Resolutions passed at the Economic Conference of the Allies at Paris in June, 1916, and, if so, with what result?


The policy of His Majesty's Government for safeguarding the dye industry in this country was announced in this House on the 15th May, 1918. That policy, which is in conformity with the Paris Resolutions, and to which effect is given in the Bill, has been well-known to our Allies ever since it was first formulated.
