§ 8. Mr. CRAVEN-ELLIS
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to take to safeguard British labour against the increased imports of baths, Which increased by 1,732 6 tons for the four months ending 30th April, 1934, compared with the corresponding period for 1932; and are these increased imports increasing the favourable trade balance which the countries concerned have with Great Britain?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Any question of an increased duty on baths is a matter for the Import Duties Advisory Committee in the first instance. As regards the last part of the question, the great bulk of the imports of iron and steel baths are derived from Germany.
