HC Deb 09 May 1935 vol 301 cc1123-4

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he proposes to extend the quota on Japanese imports of textiles to the colonies so as to include made-up goods, the restrictions of the quota having been overcome to some degree by the substitution of goods of this class?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Sir Philip Cunliffe-Lister)

From the evidence so far available, it would not appear that existing quota restrictions are being seriously affected by the importation of made-up goods. I am, however, watching the position. My hon. Friend will appreciate that any extension of the quota system would require very careful consideration.
