§ 22. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the Secretary of State for India if he is aware that in the India Textile Amendment Act, 1934, an alteration has been made to Class 158 J which will have a serious 164 effect upon the trade between Lancashire and India; and what he proposes to do regarding it?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Butler)
The India Textile Amendment Act, 1934, as a whole is satisfactory to this country. On the particular point to which my hon. Friend refers representations wore unsuccessfully made to the Government of India by His Majesty's Government, but my hon. Friend will not overlook the fact that this country does actually enjoy a preferential advantage of 10 per cent. under this head, which is a gain as compared with the position as it existed until quite recently.
