HC Deb 13 February 1930 vol 235 c623W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the dumping of textile goods in this country from Soviet Russia at a price less than their cost of production in that or any other country; and what action he proposes to take to safeguard employment in Lancashire?


I am aware that Russian textile goods are being offered at low prices to British export houses, and that a certain quantity has come upon the United Kingdom market. As regards the last part of the question, I can add nothing to the statements already made as to Government policy.
