§ Sir JOHN RANDLES
asked whether steps are or have been taken to secure supplies from clothing contractors or manufacturers in this country and to employ the labour of both workers and machines at home before giving orders for garments in America; and will the Government give preference to home manufacturers, quality and price being equal to American goods?
§ Mr. FORSTER
The answer to both questions is in the affirmative. It is unlikely that any further orders for making 543W up clothing will be placed outside the United Kingdom.
