HC Deb 22 July 1845 vol 82 c955
Mr. Forster

then moved, that the House resolve itself into Committee, for the purpose of considering the propriety of repealing the duty on a great number of articles, such as quinine, torrified starch, horses, mares, colts, &c. He would not, at that late hour, trouble the House by going into the particulars of all these items; but he thought, considering the small amount of duty received from them, that they ought to have been included in the general Tariff; and he hoped the right hon. Baronet would give some satisfactory reason for their omission.

Sir R. Peel

said, when he had brought forward his reduced Tariff, he did not state that there were not other articles on which a reduction of duty ought not also to be made; but, considering the progress that the Government had made during the past three years in commercial reform, he thought the House might very well leave further alterations in their hands for future consideration.

Motion withdrawn.
