§ 46. Mr. MANDER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether negotiations with Japanese representatives in connection with Japanese competition in articles other than textiles are contemplated; and what action, if any, the Government propose to take?
§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)
I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Platting (Mr. Chorlton) on 28th November.
§ Mr. MANDER
Is my right hon. Friend aware that there are many other trades, particularly the metal trade, which are 485 just as keenly interested in Japanese competition as the textile trades; and is he not going to take some steps with regard to them also?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
If my hon. Friend refers to the answer given on 28th November he will find that it refers to that point.
