§ Mr. PETO
asked whether, in view of the recent declaration of the Home Secretary with regard to retaliation in connection with the new French tariff, the Government propose to impose any duties on Japanese silks, porcelain, and curios, with a view to negotiation for more favourable treatment of British, and particularly Lancashire and Yorkshire, products?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
I must refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave on this subject on the 26th instant to the hon. Member for West Staffordshire.
§ Mr. BURGOYNE
Could the right hon. Gentleman state the total value of textile goods exported from this country which will be adversely affected, and also the average increase of duties which will be imposed?
