HC Deb 06 April 1925 vol 182 c1807

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware of the movement in the Irish Free State in favour of putting a duty on imported British machinery and goods; and whether he will take steps to protect British manufactures and the thousands of workers in these industries if these duties are imposed?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

As regards the first part of the question, I have no information, and, as regards the second, I am afraid that I cannot answer a hypothetical question.
