HC Deb 18 July 1938 vol 338 cc1800-1
54. Mr. Remer

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of a probable request for the consideration of an import duty to the Import Duties Advisory Committee, whether he can state the value and quantity of Jacquard designs and cards imported into this country for use in the silk industry?

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

I regret that the desired information is not available, as particulars of the imports of Jacquard designs and cards, whether for use in the silk industry or otherwise, are not separately recorded in the trade returns of the United Kingdom.
