Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 15th February 1955.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Wilson:

Is the hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the best thing he could do to increase piece goods exports would be to deal with the question of Purchase Tax on Lancashire cotton cloth? Is he now telling the House that as a result of looking at these things in a new light we have now no cotton piece exports in addition to having no guns, no aircraft, and no figures?
