HC Deb 11 February 1930 vol 235 c245W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether in view of the fact that warm fabrics, known as artificial furs, can now be obtained which are cheaper, lighter, and heathier than real fur, and the manufacture of which will encourage a home industry, he will consider reducing or prohibiting the importation of furs into this country, the procuring of which involves cruelty?


As I informed my hon. Friend in answer to a question on 9th December last, the course he suggests does not appear to be practicable.
