HC Deb 21 June 1939 vol 348 cc2245-7W
Mr. Barnes

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that Japanese agents are endeavouring to unload on the British market a large consignment of salmon; and, as it is not in the public interest that their efforts should succeed, in view of the Japanese attacks on British citizens and interests in China,

Mr. Cross

The following statement shows the total quantity and declared value of the under mentioned descriptions of granite imported into the United Kingdom during each of the last five years:

whether he will take steps to prevent this?

Mr. Cross

I understand that considerable supplies of last year's output of canned Russian and Japanese salmon are in bond in this country but that a large part of these supplies already belongs to British subjects. As regards the second part of the question, the situation to which the hon. Member refers is, of course, receiving the closest attention of His Majesty's Government at the present time.
