HC Deb 20 July 1925 vol 186 cc1844-5W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he is aware that goods manufactured in Czechoslovakia and Austria are now being exposed for sale in the pavilion of the British Empire Exhibition; and whether such goods will be withdrawn, seeing the purpose of the Exhibition?


I am informed by the British Empire Exhibition authorities that they are doing their utmost to prevent goods of foreign manufacture being on sale in the Exhibition, and that they have already insisted upon the removal of a number of such articles. If the hon. Member will send me particulars of any specific cases which he has in mind, I will at once ask the Exhibition authorities to make investigations and take the necessary steps.
