47. Dr. HOWITT

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the imports of matches into this country from abroad during the year 1933 were substantially higher than in the previous year; and whether he will take this fact into account when considering the duty upon matches?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, all relevant factors will be taken into consideration when the duty on matches is reviewed.
