§ 21. Mrs. COPELAND
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the announcement that Japanese industrialists are entering into negotiations with the British industrialists in regard to textile goods, the pottery industry is likewise being made the basis of negotiations?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Chorlton) on the 28th November.
§ Mrs. COPELAND
In view of the fact that the pottery trade employs thousands of workers and uses thousands of tons of coal per annum, will the right hon. Gentleman kindly assure us that he is not going to forget the pottery trade?
