HC Deb 16 June 1959 vol 607 cc15-6W
23. Wing Commander Bullus

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps the Government proposes to take to relieve the difficulties of the glove industry of the United Kingdom arising out of cheap labour conditions in Hong Kong.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

While we recognise the difficulties for the glove industry of the imports of knitted and fabric gloves from Hong Kong, for the reasons which my right hon. Friend has explained on previous occasions, it is not the Government's policy to impose restrictions on the imports of colonial goods.
