HC Deb 28 January 1937 vol 319 cc1089-90W
Mr. Chorlton

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether the increase in the imports of Indian cotton into this country, as recorded up to the end of last cotton season, is being maintained during the present season; and whether he has any reason to suppose that the Government of India contemplates a practical recognition of the efforts made in this country to foster an increase in the consumption of this important Indian primary product?

Mr. Butler

Yes, Sir, the imports of Indian raw cotton into this country have continued to increase. As regards the second part of the question, my hon. Friend is no doubt aware that preliminary steps towards the negotiation of a new trade agreement between the United

classes with over 30 pupils and of these two classes contained over 40 pupils.
