Mr. T. WILSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the restriction on the export of yarn and cotton goods to Switzerland and other neutral countries is affecting the Lancashire cotton industry; and when these restrictions will be removed or modified?
Sir A. STANLEY
Any restrictions on the export of cotton yarn and cotton goods from this country must, I fear, necessarily affect the cotton industry. As regards the last part of the hon. Member's question, I would suggest that the inquiry should be addressed to the Minister of Blockade.
