§ 30. Mr. H. WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the imports of electrical goods and apparatus have increased from £136,773 in May, 1932, to £152,144 in May, 1933, and to £304,873 in May, 1934; and how long he expects it will be before action is taken to check these rapidly increasing imports?
§ Dr. BURGIN
I am aware of the increased imports to which my hon. Friend draws attention. Any question of an increased duty on goods which are subject to duty under the Import Duties Act is a matter for the Import Duties Advisory Committee in the first instance.
