§ Mr. G. GIBSON
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will supply complete quarterly average figures of prices in the silk and rayon industry, respectively, for the years 1924 to 1929?
§ Mr. W. R. SMITH
I am afraid that the information available is incomplete and is not suited for comparison from period to period.

asked the Minister of Labour how wages paid in the artificial silk industry in France, Italy, Belgium, and Czechoslovakia compare with those paid in the British industry?
§ Miss BONDFIELD
I regret that I have no recent statistics of wages paid in the artificial silk industry of France,636W Italy, Belgium and Czechoslovakia; but I will make inquiry of the International Labour Office and forward to the hon. and gallant Member any information that office may have available.
