§ 66. Mr. REMER
asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the fact that since the Safeguarding Duty on cutlery has lapsed German commercial travellers in this country are offering scissors and pocket Penknives at a reduction of 25 per cent.; and if, in view of these facts, the Government will reconsider their attitude to the Safeguarding Duties?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative, but I am not surprised to learn that the effect of the lapse of the duty has been to reduce prices.
§ Mr. GRAHAM
I have no information on that point. In any event, the facts here are contrary to all my hon. Friend's argument.
