HC Deb 10 May 1962 vol 659 c626
25. Mr. Sorensen

asked the President of the Board of Trade in view of the apprehension of umbrella manufacturers in this country at the prospect of unfair competition between British manufacturers and Japanese importers of umbrellas into this country, whether he has now received a further deputation on this matter from representatives of this industry subsequent to his meeting with representatives of the industry on 15th August, 1961.

Mr. Erroll

No, Sir, but my hon. Friend the Minister of State is to receive a deputation of umbrella manufacturers on 30th May.

Mr. Sorensen

The right hon. Gentleman says that he is not going to receive a deputation. Since a deputation was received by another Minister, will the right hon. Gentleman say what was the result of it?

Mr. Erroll

The deputation is going to see my hon. Friend on 30th May.
