§ 43. Mr. Barnett
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the action he has now taken on the recommendations of the Textile Council.
§ Mr. Jay
I have received a copy of the Statement issued by the Textile Council on 13th June.
As I said in reply to a Question from my hon. Friend on 19th June, I see no prospect in present circumstances of the exporting countries now agreeing to further restrictions on their exports to this country, but I have agreed with the Textile Council that arrangements should be made for early discussion of other matters referred to in its Statement.—[Vol. 748, c. 189.]
