§ 16. Mr. FENBY
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is now in a position to announce his decision with regard to the appointing of a committee to consider the advisability of placing a tariff upon imported silk, whether pure or artificial; and, if so, whether the terms of reference to the committee will embrace silk when interwoven with cotton or used for the lining of wearing apparel?
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave to the hon. Member for West Middlesbrough (Mr. T. Thomson) and others on the 17th March, of which I am sending him a copy.
