§ 55. Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, with a view to relieving the uncertainty respecting future conditions, he will take an early opportunity of stating the policy of the Government with regard to the renewal of the Dyestuffs Act?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The matter is still under consideration; a statement will be made as soon as possible.
§ Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
Is the right hon. Gentleman not aware of the very considerable state of anxiety in those industries as to what is to be the future policy of the Government, and why can he not give a reply?
§ Mr. GRAHAM
This is a very large subject. The Act does not expire until January, 1931, and I think the circumstances are such that there will be no detriment to anyone if the Government makes the statement which it proposes to do at an early date.
