§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply which was given on 15th December last to a similar question asked by my hon. Friend the Member for West Nottingham (Mr. Caporn).
§ Mr. CAPORN
Will the right hon. Gentleman consult the chairman of the Import Duties Advisory Committee and see if it is possible to find some means by which the hearing of these applications may be expedited?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
I have been in communication on previous occasions with the chairman of the Committee on the matter, and he assures me that there is no unnecessary delay and that these applications do receive the constant attention of the Committee.
§ Mr. EVERARD
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether any of the decisions that have been reached by the Advisory Committee are being held up by the Government?
