HC Deb 12 July 1955 vol 543 c153W
17. Mr. P. Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade to consider increasing the Empire content of materials for umbrellas from 25 per cent. to 50 per cent. when they are to attract preference under the present import arrangements.

Mr. P. Thomeycroft

No. I understand that the imports of umbrellas which qualify for Imperial Preference, in fact, contain practically no non-Commonwealth materials.
