HC Deb 24 March 1925 vol 182 c274W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, seeing that 75 per cent. of the applications for import licences under the Dyestuffs Act are received from dyestuffs merchants, and that it is the unanimous wish of these merchants that the names of all dyes for the import of which licences have been granted should be published, he will consider following the American practice of publishing the names at regular intervals?


The suggestion made by the hon. Member was carefully considered by the Dyestuffs Advisory Licensing Committee some time ago, when it was decided not to publish the particulars in question. I am not aware of any change of circumstances which would warrant a reversal of that decision.
