HC Deb 13 July 1936 vol 314 c1685W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the representations from the Cotton Trade League protesting against the inadequate reductions in Indian import duties on British textiles, and the omission of prints, yarns, and rayons from the operation of the reductions; and whether he will take steps with the Indian authorities to reconsider their decision in this connection?


The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave on the 9th July to the hon. Member for Farnworth (Mr. Rowson).
