Alert me about debates like this

Sir F. HALL:


asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give the House any information as to the number of persons employed in the entrepôt trade in this country; whether there is any indication of this trade being transferred to Continental centres where tariff restrictions already exist; and if he will try and arrange for statistics to be kept showing how far employment figures are affected in particular trades or industries concerned with the duties now being imposed under the Abnormal Importations (Customs Duties) Act, 1931?
