§ 73. Mr. SUTCLIFFE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the interests of the Lancashire cotton 746 industry, he proposes to take any steps to improve the trade in cotton goods with India?
§ Major COLVILLE
My hon. Friend may rest assured that His Majesty's Government is aware of the situation in regard to our trade with India and will take all desirable steps that lie within its power to increase the trade of the United Kingdom. In this connection I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Stockport (Mr. Hammersley) on 19th November, 1931, a copy of which I am sending to him.
