§ 27. Mr. MANDER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in order to allay uncertainities in industries, he can now state the intention of the Government with regard to the Dyestuffs (Import Regulation) Act when it expires at the end of this year; and whether it is intended to renew it in any form?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
I have at present nothing to add to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member on the 17th December.
§ Mr. MANDER
Could the right hon. Gentleman give any indication of the date when he will be likely to make a statement about this very important matter?
§ Mr. GRAHAM
No, Sir. I think, speaking from memory, that the Act expires in January, 1931. The matter is at present under consideration, and a statement will be made as soon as possible, but I could not at the moment promise a date.
