HC Deb 08 February 1926 vol 191 cc626-7
46. Mr. REMER

asked the Prime Minister Then the Bill will he introduced to impose duties on wrapping paper, as recommended by the Committee set up under the Safeguarding of Industries Act?


asked the President of the Board of Trade if and when he intends to give effect to the Report of the Committee on Packing and Wrapping Paper in connection with safeguarding of industries?


I have been asked to reply. I would refer to the answer given by the Prime Minister of 8th December last to the effect that it was the intention of the Government to re-introduce this Session the proposal for a duty on packing and wrapping paper. I am not, however, at present in a position to make any further statement on the matter.


Is the hon. Gentleman aware that there is considerable dumping going on, which is causing considerable injury, and will he take steps to see that the interests of these people are safeguarded?


I think such information as the hon. Member has just given will have been noted by the Department concerned.

Lieut. - Commander KENWORTHY

Surely this will have to be introduced in the Budget? May I ask the Prime Minister whether this will be included?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)

It will be either included in the Budget, or taken as a separate Revenue Bill.


Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the necessity of simplifying the procedure?


That is another question.
