HC Deb 06 March 1928 vol 161 c209
2. Lieut.-Colonel HILDER

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has any power to supervise the regulations of the associations of dyers in this country in the event of their enforcing regulations which impose a handicap on our textile manufacturers; and is he aware that the Bradford Association of Dyers, by insisting that a minimum of six pieces of cloth should be dyed to any one shade, are hindering our manufacturers, since the custom abroad is to allow a minimum of two pieces to any one shade?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. The matter appears to be one for discussion between the interests concerned.
