§ 46. Mr. HALLAS
asked the Prime Minister whether his attention has been called to the new prohibitionist decrees of the Italian Government; and whether the good offices of the League of Nations will be invoked for the purpose of preventing a tariff war?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)
I presume the hon. Member refers to the Italian Decree of the 31st July, abolishing all previous import restrictions, but instituting a new and extended list of goods for which import licences are necessary. This action has, I think, been taken largely on account of the Italian exchange.
