HC Deb 25 February 1926 vol 192 cc757-8W

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the object of the Return, entitled Third Census of Production of the United Kingdom (1924), Timber Trades; what use is made of the information thereby derived; is he aware that the filling up of this form entails a great deal of inconvenience and expense to those firms to whom it is sent; and will he consider whether, in the interests of economy, this Return may now be given up?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answers given on Tuesday to the hon. Member for Grimsby (Mr. Womersley), copy of which I am sending him.
