HC Deb 23 November 1908 vol 196 c1779
MR. GIBB (Middlesex, Harrow)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether with a view to the better understanding of the recently issued Memorandum by Mr. Alfred Marshall on the fiscal policy of international trade, he will lay upon the Table of the House the terms of the request made to Mr. Marshall in 1903 that he should give his views on the subject.


No, Sir. I do not think it would be desirable for me to lay these Papers upon the Table of the House.


Was it the Memorandum written up to date which was quoted by the right hon. Gentleman in his Budget speech, or was it the old Memorandum of 1903?


I quoted from the Memorandum of 1903. There was practically no alteration.
