HC Deb 12 October 1943 vol 392 cc729-30W
Mr. Liddall

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the recent statement of Mr. Henry Wallace, Vice-President of the United States of America, in respect of international cartels operating in restraint of trade; and whether he will set up a committee to inquire as to the effect of these cartels on British production and trade?

Mr. Dalton

I have seen the statement mentioned by my hon. Friend, but I am unable at present to add to the reply given by the Prime Minister on 22nd July to my hon. Friend the Member for Llanelly (Mr. J. Griffiths).
