HC Deb 15 February 1934 vol 285 cc2100-1
57. Mr. MABANE

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can make a statement to show the extent to which industries have availed themselves of the imposition of tariffs to engage in reorganisation along the lines of planned co-ordination of the activities of producing and distributing units?


My hon. Friend will appreciate that this is a subject which cannot be adequately dealt with by way of question and answer.


Can the hon. Member assure me that the Government intend to use tariffs on behalf of those who reorganise themselves on planned co-ordina- tion and modern methods, and not on behalf of those who continue in methods that are not up-to-date?


I think the answer is well known.
