§ 46. Mr. HANNON
asked the Prime Minister whether he has received a petition, signed by 12,861 employers and workpeople engaged in and dependent upon the lace industry in the city of Nottingham, setting forth 15 reasons in support of the continuance of the Safeguarding Duties in favour of this industry; and what answer he has returned?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
The hon. Member will no doubt have seen the answer which I sent and which has been published in the Press.
§ Mr. HANNON
Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether the answer has given satisfaction in Nottingham?
§ Lieut.-Colonel ACLAND-TROYTE
Has the right hon. Gentleman received a similar petition from Tiverton lace-makers; and will he do nothing to help those people to maintain their standard of living?
