72. Mr. BRAITHWAITE
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will be in a position to announce His Majesty's Government's plans for dealing with abnormal importations of iron and steel products before the House rises for the Christmas recess?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. Hore-Belisha)
My right hon. Friend is in the course of receiving representations from various sections of the iron and steel industry.
§ Sir H. CROFT
Is it not a fact that this industry is going through a time of tremendous depression, and cannot the hon. Gentleman make a decision quickly?
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Is the hon. Gentleman not aware that this is a matter of life and death to the industry?
