HC Deb 07 June 1928 vol 218 c347
67. Mr. DAY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India if he has any information that will show the number of mills at present closed on account of the strike in Bombay; and can he give particulars of the new systems of work recommended by the Tariff Board, giving comparable figures of the previous system?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Earl Winterton)

The latest report received from India gives the number of mills closed as 71. The information asked for in the second part of the question will be found in Chapter IX of the Report of the Indian Tariff Board on the Cotton Textile Industry, 1927, a copy of which is being sent to the hon. Member.


Have any of the mills been reopened since the Reports were issued?


I could not answer that question without notice.
