HC Deb 26 May 1933 vol 278 c1436W

asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of new industries which have been established in this country Since the change in our fiscal system up to the end of April, 1933, and the approximate number of British workers who have thereby been given employment?


I would refer to the reply which was given to the hon. Member for East Birkenhead (Mr. White) on 23rd May regarding the new undertakings established in this country by, or with the assistance of, foreign concerns during the period November, 1931, to April, 1933. I hope during the course of next month to furnish a statement regarding British as well as foreign new undertakings established during the year 1932.
