§ 66. Mr. C. WHITE
asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any Colony or Protectorate will be compelled to introduce preferential duties in its tariffs against the wish of the non-official representatives of their respective legislatures?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of SHIPPING (Colonel Leslie Wilson, for Lieut.-Colonel Amery)
If any such case arise, the Secretary of State will consider the question with due regard to all the circumstances.
§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
Was not that the case on the Gold Coast in connection. with the export duties on oil?
§ Colonel WILSON
I understand that it was the case, and therefore it was necessary for my right hon. Friend to review the position.
§ Lieut.-Commander KENWORTHY
Is my hon. and gallant Friend defending the Government for using the official majority to force through this legislation?
