HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2001-2
24. Captain BENN

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has given further consideration to the case of the firm of printers who were refused permission to import a French printing ink necessary for their business; and what decision has been arrived at?


In view of the representations made by the hon. and gallant Member, I considered the case carefully, but failed to find any grounds for overruling the decision of the Licensing Committee, who had given the case full and careful consideration.

Captain BENN

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that in consequence of this decision a large order was lost to this British firm?


No, I am not. I went very fully into the case, and I am quite satisfied that the Licensing Committee have followed their regular and proper practice.
