HC Deb 14 November 1932 vol 270 cc725-6
5. Captain FULLER

asked the Secretary of State for India if he is aware of the injury that the export duty on jute from India is doing to the industry; and if he will represent to the Government of India the desirability of either repealing or substantially reducing the duty to prevent further disaster to the jute industry in India?


The Government of India are fully alive to the considerations affecting this duty both on the revenue and the commercial side. I will communicate a copy of my hon. Friend's question to them.
