HC Deb 28 February 1921 vol 138 cc1384-5
3. Sir T. POLSON

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether commercial motor vehicles of foreign manufacture are admitted to this country free of import duty; and whether, having regard to the very serious depression in the home motor industry and the resultant unemployment, steps will be taken to make the class of vehicle referred to subject to at least the same duty as foreign motor cars.

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, I cannot anticipate future legislation.
