§ 13. Mr. PILCHER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can 1001 supply statistics as to purchases made by British glove factors from the wool staplers and leather manufacturers and as to the degree of prosperity now enjoyed by the industry?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I regret that statistical information of the particular kind asked for by my hon. Friend is not available. I understand, however, that there has recently been a decided improvement in the leather glove industry, and that over the industry as a whole employment is generally good.
