I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply returned to a question asked by the hon. Member for Gravesend (Mr. Albery) on the 21st January, of which I am sending him a copy.
§ Commander BELLAIRS
Can the hon. Gentleman point to any instance in which sweated goods have been kept out of this country by the Labour Government?
§ Mr. ALBERY
Can the hon. Member indicate any steps whatever which have been taken by his Government since they came into office?
§ Sir W. DAVISON
Is the hon. Member aware that a large number of British working men are kept out of employment by the foreign sweated goods which come in?
