HC Deb 09 July 1936 vol 314 c1392
56. Mr. ROWSON

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the grave dissatisfaction prevailing in the cotton trade in Lancashire concerning the Indian import duties on British textiles; and will he take steps to secure a further reduction of such duties and at the same time try to bring prints, yarns, and rayons within the scope and operation of such reductions?


The views and wishes of the Lancashire cotton organisations are being kept well in mind, and especially the points mentioned in the latter part of the question.
