§ 68. Mr. CROSSLEY
asked the President of the Board of Trade, whether the proposals he has received for the formation of a textile dyers' federation have been submitted to and replies received from the spinners, manufacturers, calico printers, and bleachers; and whether, in the event of the support of a substantial majority of the dyers for these proposals, he will consider introducing legislation to enable them to institute a redundancy and quota scheme?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The proposals which I have received for the formation of a textile dyers' federation have been submitted to the various sections of the 1313 textile trades which are likely to be affected by them and replies have been received from some but not all of the interests consulted. I am not at present in a position to make any statement as to the possibility of legislation in connection with these proposals.
