§ 57. Viscount CURZON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he can state what trades are directly and indirectly affected by the withdrawal of the McKenna Duties?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. A. V. Alexander)
I have been asked to reply. Various industries and branches of industries are concerned directly or indirectly in the manufacture of the articles on which the duties are levied, but their interest in the duties is, in many cases, only slight, and consequently it is not practicable to draw up a list of the kind the hon. Member has in mind which would serve any very useful purpose.
