HC Deb 03 December 1908 vol 197 c1633
MR. JESSE COLLINGS (Birmingham, Bordesley)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consent to issue an official Memorandum by Professor Hewins on the Fiscal Policy of International Trade in the same way as he has issued a Memorandum by Professor Marshall on the same subject.

(Answered by Mr. Hobhouse.) As my Tight hon. friend stated in reply to the hon. Member for Dulwich on the 24th ultimo, Mr. Marshall's Memorandum was prepared for and on the invitation of the late Government, and was only published owing to the hon. Member's own request. He at the same time explained why he considered it undesirable to issue a rejoiner at the public expense.
