§ 90. Mr. Peter Freeman
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many furs were imported into this country from 1111 September to December, 1945; and whether any inquiry is made as to how these furs are obtained, to secure a minimum of cruelty to the animals concerned
§ Mr. Belcher
Imports of fur skins, other than rabbit skins, are not recorded by numbers of skins, and no such figures are available. As to the second part of the Question, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answers given to him by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 5th March.
