HC Deb 14 November 1950 vol 480 cc139-40W
94. Captain Crookshank

asked the President of the Board of Trade on what authority Mr. Hewitt, of Heapham Mill, near Gainsborough, who sells honey to the public, has been instructed to alter the spelling on the labels from "1 lb. Nett" to "1 lb. Net."

Mr. Rhodes

I am glad that our attention has been drawn to this matter. The provisions of the Prepacked Foods

year, as compared with that of the previous year, is due to increased production in Hong Kong; and whether the total figure includes any goods imported into Hong Kong and then exported to this country.

Mr. Bottomley

The main reason for the increased imports of apparel from Hong Kong during 1950 as compared with 1949 is that, in pursuance of the Government's policy of liberalising international trade, restrictions on the import of apparel from most countries outside the dollar area were removed in October, 1949. I am satisfied that all the garments which have been imported into this country from Hong Kong were manufactured in that Colony.
