§ 66. Dr. J. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade the number of French-owned factories brought into operation in this country since the adoption of the Import Duties Act?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I would refer the hon. Member to the replies given to the hon. Member for Chorley (Mr. Hacking) on the 19th December, 1932, and to the hon. Member for Swansea, West (Mr. L. Jones) on the 2nd June, 1932, of which I am sending him copies. He will find that during the period from November, 1931, to October, 1932, 218 undertakings were established in this country by, or with the assistance of foreign concerns and that there were French interests in IS of these undertakings.
§ Mr. MAXTON
Can the right hon. Gentleman say how many persons have been employed or are being employed in these factories?
