HC Deb 05 December 1938 vol 342 c855
36. Mr. Liddall

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he is aware that, in the 1938 Report on Trade in the Argentine (No. 705), it is stated that United Kingdom manufacturers of wallpaper persist in offering wallpaper in 12-yard rolls while local buyers insist upon 8-yard rolls, and that marbled-pattern paper of non-British origin is preferred and sold owing to local taste in pattern being catered for; and will he ascertain from United Kingdom manufacturers why they lose trade by disregarding local tastes and measurement requirements?

Mr. R. S. Hudson (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

Yes, Sir. I am in communication with United Kingdom manufacturers.
