HC Deb 11 April 1935 vol 300 c1330
56. Major PROCTER

asked the President of the Board of Trade what action His Majesty's Government proposes to take to prevent foreign textile goods imported for finishing purpose being re-exported as British made?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

Consideration of this question is proceeding, but I regret I am unable at present to add to the answer on the subject which my right hon. Friend gave my hon. and gal-land Friend on 14th March.


If I put down a question next week, will the hon. and gallant Member be able to reply then?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

I cannot say definitely, but I hope to be able to state something soon.


When he is making inquiries, will the hon. and gallant Member try to find out whether some of these finishing processes are actually carried on in Lancashire, where this protest comes from?
