HC Deb 27 May 1930 vol 239 cc975-6
20. Major the Marquess of TITCHFIELD

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can give the House any account of his interview with the deputation from the lace trade which waited upon him recently?


No, Sir. At the request of the deputation itself the proceedings were to be treated as confidential.

Marquess of TITCHFIELD

Is the right hon. Gentleman cognisant of the fact that since the Budget speech of the Chancellor of the Exchequer Messrs. Lambert and Wood, lacemakers, of Nottingham, have had to close down and to turn away between 80 and 100 men?


Quite plainly, I should require notice in order to answer that question. It is outside the point put to me in the original question.
