§ 53. Viscount WOLMER
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will indicate with more precision the policy of His Majesty's Government in regard to the maintenance of the McKenna Duties?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Philip Snowden)
The policy of the Government has been clearly stated on many occasions. In particular, I would refer the Noble Lord to what I said on this matter in the Budget speech.
§ Viscount WOLMER
Did not the right hon. Gentleman hear the Lord Privy Seal himself say here, on the 20th May, that unemployment had been largely aggravated by the uncertainty that prevailed in regard to this matter?
§ Major COLVILLE
Are we to understand that these industries must remain in a condition of uncertainty so long as the present Government is in office?
