HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 cc1955-6W
Colonel BURTON

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any application has been made for the inclusion of the British coir mat and mating industry under the Safeguarding of Industries Act; and, if so, with what result?


I am afraid I must adhere to the established practice, which has frequently been referred to in the House, of not stating whether a particular industry has or has not made an application under the Safeguarding procedure, except on the appointment of a committee of inquiry.
