§ 6. Mr. OLIVER
asked the Under-Secretary of State for India what action the Government propose to take in regard to the recommendations that India should become self-supporting in the matter of salt supply contained in paragraph 179 of the Report of the Taxation Inquiry Committee?
§ Earl WINTERTON
The Committee considered that it is desirable that India should be made self-supporting in the matter of salt supply if this end can be secured by the granting of a strictly temporary advantage to the local manufacturer, and recommended that an inquiry should be made by the Tariff Board into this aspect of the question. My Noble Friend has not yet heard from the Government of India what action they propose to take in the matter.
