HC Deb 22 March 1927 vol 204 cc176-7
7. Sir P. GOFF

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will take steps to provide that, on applications for the safeguarding of industries, all evidence of the unfair foreign conditions referred to in the Board of Trade White Paper, which is obtainable by the Government through their foreign commercial attachés, shall be made available for the use of committees without expense to the parties to the application?


The Board of Trade are always ready to put at the disposal of committees any information in their possession which can properly be made public. I have already explained to the House the reasons which make it undesirable to disclose information obtained from confidential sources.
