HC Deb 15 March 1967 vol 743 cc96-7W
62. Mr. Hall-Davis

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of cotton and man-made fibre cloth imports in January being the biggest monthly total ever, what steps he will take to fulfill his undertakings given to the Cotton Board conference in October, 1965 that cotton textile imports from low-cost countries should not for the time being be allowed to rise further as a percentage of United Kingdom internal consumption.

Mr. Jay

The question does not arise, because I have more than fulfilled the undertaking which I gave at the Cotton Board Conference. The global quota now in force ensures this.
