§ 12. Sir WILLIAM MITCHELL - THOMSON
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether he is aware that the municipal corporation of Bombay are issuing tender forms in which intending contractors are asked to note that the corporation have expressed the opinion that no articles manufactured in any part of the British Empire outside India should be used by any of the departments of the municipality or by any contractor, except when they are not available in any other part of the world: and whether he has received any information on the subject from the Government of India?
§ Mr. RICHARDS
I have heard from the Government of India that the resolution was passed, but have not yet heard of any action taken on it.
§ Mr. A. M. SAMUEL
Is the hon. Gentleman aware that investors in England will not be content to send 1284 money to India if it is spent in buying foreign goods while their own people are out of work?
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Do we understand that the hon. Gentleman is asking for further information?
