asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has received a protest from the Bolton Chamber of Commerce against the issue of an Order, under Part II of the Safeguarding of Industries Act, to include fabric gloves; and, if so, can he make a statement on the subject?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the last part, I propose to make a statement on the subject in due course.
