§ 48. Dr. HOWITT
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention has been drawn to the fact that the import of biscuits into this country is rapidly increasing; and, as many of these biscuits are outside the scope of the Import Duties Act, will he consider the protection of biscuits in his forthcoming Budget?
As regards the first part of the question, there are no strictly comparable figures available. As regards the second part of the question, my hon. Friend appears to be under a misapprehension. Biscuits are goods which it is within the province of the Import Duties Advisory Committee to consider and it is open to the interests concerned to apply to the committee.
