§ 61. Brigadier-General Sir HENRY CROFT
asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of persons who will be employed in the motor car and tyre factories which foreign countries have decided to erect in this country?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Herbert Williams)
I understand from the public announcements that have been made that the motor car and tyre factories which have recently been, or are about to be, erected by firms with foreign interests are expected to give employment to some 13,000 people.
§ Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
What proportion of that number is employed in the subsidiary industries—building and other trades?
§ Sir H. CROFT
Does not this remarkable result tend to prove that foreigners are of opinion that these duties are paid by the importer?
