HC Deb 20 March 1967 vol 743 c208W
Mr. Thornton

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that in the recent months of September-January imports of cotton piece goods from Portugal totalled 18½ million square yards, equal to an annual rate of 55½ million square yards, or almost double the 1966 total; and whether that is the level which it is his policy to allow for 1967.

Mr. Jay

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply I gave to the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) on 15th March.—[Vol. 743, c. 474–5.]
