§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the value of imports of handkerchiefs from Japan in the first quarter of 1967; and what is the outlook in this respect for the rest of the year.
§ Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu
Imports of handkerchiefs from Japan in the first quarter of 1967 totalled 228,000 dozen valued at £34,000. This was substantially less than in the first three months of 1966. The Japanese have told us that steps have been taken to establish orderly marketing and that exports of small sized printed handkerchiefs would be reduced this year.
