HC Deb 13 May 1948 vol 450 c234W
43. Mr. Piratin

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps have been taken to increase the imports of leather from India.

Mr. H. Wilson

I presume the hon. Member refers to the import of rough-tanned hides and skins from India. Supplies are somewhat lower than usual owing to transport difficulties in India, but the position is being carefully watched and I hope that supplies will now increase again.
