9. Mr. ROBINSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if having regard to the present position of the textile indutry, he will set up a Commission to in-quire as to the causes of the present depression and the steps to be taken to restore the industry to a satisfactory condition?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
As at present advised, I do not think that the textile industries would be materially assisted by the appointment of a special Commission such as the hon. Member suggests.
§ Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
Will my right hon. Friend consider the advisability of applying the provision of the Safeguarding of Industries Act in this case?
