HC Deb 16 June 1927 vol 207 cc1178-9

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware of the difficulties that are experienced by the cotton mills in India owing to Japanese competition; and whether, in view of the proposal to erect Japanese mills in India, any action has been taken, or is proposed to be taken, on the Report of the External Capital Committee?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The recommendations of the External Capital Committee are under consideration by the Government of India in consultation with the Provincial Governments, and the point raised in the second part of the question will, no doubt, not be lost sight of.
