HC Deb 23 February 1926 vol 192 cc271-2

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the committee appointed to inquire into and report upon an application which has been made under the safeguarding of industries procedure by the National Joint Industrial Council of the Hosiery and Knitwear of Cotton or Wool will be instructed to take into account the effect of any duty upon the retail price of those articles, in view of the importance that they should be procured as cheaply as possible by the poorer members of the community?


No, Sir. The instructions to the Committee appointed to inquire into this particular application will be the same as those given to other committees appointed under the Safeguarding of Industries procedure, and are set out in Part II. of the White Paper.
