HC Deb 17 July 1962 vol 663 cc31-2W
54. Mr. Ross

asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received from the Scottish Hosiery and Knitwear Manufacturers Association about the increased import of knitted garments from Hong Kong; and what reply he has made.

Mr. Erroll

The Association has drawn my attention to the increasing volume of knitwear which is being imported into this country from Hong Kong and has asked for restrictions to be imposed.

I am telling the Association that I can hold out no hope of any such action being taken.
