77. Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has any further information yet as to steps to be taken either by this Government or the authorities in Australia to temper the hardship imposed on British firms which had contracted to supply textile goods to the Australian market but which are now prohibited from getting them into Australia by the new Australian import restrictions.

Mr. H. Strauss

I have nothing to add to the statement which my right hon. Friend made on 24th April in reply to my hon. Friends the Members for Newbury (Mr. Hurd) and Lanark (Mr. Patrick Maitland).
