§ 38. Mr. Wade
asked the President of the Board of Trade what safeguards he has been able to include in the terms of the proposed Anglo-Japanese Commercial Treaty to protect the wool textile industry of the United Kingdom from the effects of the dual pricing system and other discriminatory practices used by Japan.
§ Mr. D. Price
During the Adjournment debate on 31st October, I indicated the nature of the safeguards which were to be included in the proposed Anglo-Japanese Commercial Treaty. While the Treaty is under negotiation, I am not in a position to amplify what I said then. I would, however, remind the hon. Member that the safeguards I described would protect the wool textiles industry against serious injury due to disruptive imports from Japan.
