HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 c1931
53. Mr. BARTON

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to take to deal with industrial competition from British Colonies in the Far East, having regard to the fact that imports of rubber footwear from such countries increased from 11,112 pairs in April, 1933, to 296,772 pairs in April, 1934?


This matter continues to receive close attention, but I am not at present in a position to add to the reply I gave on the 6th February to the hon. Member for South Croydon (Mr. II. Williams).
