§ 45. Sir A. KNOX
asked the Prime Minister if he will consider the possibility of setting up a small fiscal council to consider applications from producers for Protection and to make recommendations to the President of the Board of Trade or the Chancellor of the Exchequer?
§ 46. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the advisability of setting up a tariff commission at the earliest opportunity with a view to evolving a system of scientific tariff protection for Great Britain?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)
I have noted the suggestion put forward by my hon. and gallant Friends.
§ Captain MACDONALD
Is it not a fact that the setting up of such a commission was part of the policy enunciated by at least one of the leaders of the National Government?
§ Sir A. KNOX
Will the right hon. Gentleman discuss this policy with the 1498 Lord President of the Council, who constantly recommended it?
