HC Deb 02 July 1930 vol 240 c1957
47. Mr. ALLEN

asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the fact that the fall in the prices of raw produce has affected the buying power of our overseas markets, His Majesty's Government will cause its economic staff to prepare and will lay upon the Table of the House a report on the economic causes of the fall in the prices of raw produce?


I could not undertake to publish, reports prepared for the use of His Majesty's Government by their advisers on highly disputable topics. Certain aspects of the question referred to by the hon. Member are receiving attention from the Committee on Finance and Industry (the Macmillan Committee).
