HC Deb 15 June 1933 vol 279 cc315-6
48. Mr. CROSS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any technical process different in principle from those employed in this country will be used at the Bata shoe and slipper works, Dagenham?


I have no information on this subject.


Will my hon. Friend obtain such information before he makes any recommendations to the Home Secretary with regard to the Czechoslovakian technicians who are to come into this country for the purpose of instructing in this machinery at the new shoe and slipper works at Dagenham?


I do not think that that supplementary question arises. In any event, it does not seem to be a matter for the Board of Trade.
