HC Deb 11 March 1958 vol 584 c27W
26. Mrs. McLaughlin

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider restricting imports of embroidered articles from Hong Kong.

Mr. Erroll

I would refer my hon. Friend to the Answer given on 27th February to her Question about imports of Commonwealth textile goods generally.

56. Mr. Sorensen

asked the President of the Board of Trade what complaints he has received from British manufacturers and exporters in respect of Japanese and other goods imported into Hong Kong and then exported to the United Kingdom and other markets with false descriptions purporting to indicate their Hong Kong origin.

Mr. Erroll

Two, from manufacturers and traders, with four from other sources. No basis has so far been found for the suggestion of misdescription. One case is still to be investigated.
