HC Deb 17 May 1934 vol 289 c1931

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the further increase in the importation of agricultural machinery during the month of April, 1934, when the imports totalled 650 tons as compared with 294 tons in the corresponding month of last year; and when the agricultural machinery manufacturers of Lincoln can expect further protection?


I am aware of the facts to which my hon. Friend draws attention. As regards the last part of the question, there is nothing I can add to the reply which was given to him on the 8th May.
