HC Deb 24 February 1926 vol 192 cc528-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the prices at present charged by the distributors and retailers of footwear and the consequent restriction of employment in the boot and shoe trade; and whether he will set up a committee to inquire into the matter?


My attention has not previously been drawn to this matter, and I am not aware of any reason for appointing a Committee of the kind suggested.
