§ Mr. Walker
asked The President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that lift gear-boxes, gear centres. and parts are being imported from Germany, the indications of origin removed, and resold as goods of British manufacture; what, if any, loss of revenue is incurred by their importation as part-machined goods; and what steps he is prepared to take to prevent this deception of consumers and loss of employment to British workers?
I have no information regarding the matter to which the hon. Member refers, but if he cares to furnish me with full particulars, I will certainly consider whether there is any action that I can take.
