§ 2. Mrs. WINTRINGHAM
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received an application for the imposing of a duty, under the Safeguarding of Industries Act, upon imported French silks; and, if so, whether he can state his decision with regard to the application?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. A primâ facie case for reference to a Committee was not made out by the applicants, but they have since furnished certain further information which is being considered.
