HC Deb 27 January 1960 vol 616 cc38-9W
81. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Minister of Labour what estimate he has made of the reduction of employment in the United Kingdom jute industry as a result of the decision to reduce the mark-up on certain imported jute goods.

Mr. Heath

It is not possible to forecast the effect on employment of the reduction in the mark-up on imported jute cloth but I do not expect it to be serious.
