HC Deb 22 June 1925 vol 185 c1056

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he will state the kind, volume and value of the cotton goods exported from China and Japan, respectively, to India for the year 1924?


As the question involves a tabular statement, I propose, with the hon. Member's permission, to circulate the answer in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the tabular statement promised:


No. I should not be prepared to ask my Noble Friend to interfere with the discretion of the local Government in this matter. An exactly similar question to this was asked in the local Council and was dealt with by the appropriate Member of the Government, and I am sure with all the facts which there are in connection with the case that there is no need for any alteration of the procedure.
