§ MR. NUSSEY (Pontefract)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any figures or further information in relation to our foreign or† See (4) Debates, cxxii, 1637.1175 colonial trade, not to be found in the Board of Trade Returns or Blue-books, which will facilitate the formation of public opinion as to the advisability or otherwise of adopting a preferential tariff in favour of our colonies; and, if so, if he will publish it.
§ MR. BONAR LAW
As the hon. Member is aware, the Board of Trade publish a number of Returns and Reports but I do not think that they have in their possession any Return or Report of a similar description which could be added to those already published. If the hon. Member will state any specific information he requires we shall consider whether it can be supplied.
