HC Deb 13 February 1934 vol 285 cc1746-7
12. Mr. MANDER

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action the Government propose to take with reference to the competition of Japanese goods with the products of Wolver- hampton and Willenhall; and whether they will consider the advisability, in view of the failure of the Japanese Government to adhere to its international obligations, of taking steps to secure a world-wide embargo on the import of Japanese goods?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Chorlton) on the 28th November.


Does my right hon. Friend feel that it is right that Japan should have a free run in the markets of the world at a time when she is breaking her international obligations?


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman in view of the momentous issue raised by the question and the source from which it comes, whether he can use his influence with the Prime Minister, so that the hon. Gentleman may recross the Floor of the House?
