HC Deb 25 February 1930 vol 235 c2049
52. Mr. REMER

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has received representations as to the Silk Duties from the Silk Association of Great Britain and Ireland; and if he will state the nature of these representations and what reply he has made to this association representing the whole silk trade?


I have received a resolution from the Silk Association urging that the Silk Duties should not be removed. The communication has been acknowledged.


Is the right hon. Gentlemen aware that the Prime Minister last week stated that the right hon. Gentleman had taken into consultation all the organisations interested; and may I ask whether he has taken into consultation the Silk Association of Great Britain?


I have not taken the Silk Association into consultation. Their views are well known.

Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

Does the right hon. Gentleman consider that the only point of view to be considered is that of the President of the Manchester Chamber of Commerce?
