HC Deb 24 July 1951 vol 491 cc31-2W
74. Sir W. Smithers

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has considered a letter sent him by the chairman of the Branded Textiles Group, about a serious threat to the future of the textile industries; what reply has been sent; and if he will publish the two letters in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Rhodes

My right hon. and learned Friend has told the Chairman of the Group that he will give the fullest consideration to the memorandum which he intends to place before him. The substance of the correspondence from the Group has been published in the Press, and I think it unnecessary to circulate it in the OFFICIAL REPORT.
