§ 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.
§ Major PROCTER
If I put down a question next week, will the hon. and gallant Member be able to reply then?
§ Mr. RHYS DAVIES
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?
