HC Deb 17 June 1903 vol 123 cc1174-5
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. 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.


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.
