HC Deb 09 April 1935 vol 300 cc953-4

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will ask the Tariff Advisory Board to con sider whether more efficient protection could be given to British millers, without damage to other British interests, by the substitution of a specific duty per sack of imported flour for the ad valorem duty which is at present imposed?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

It is open to British millers to make an application to the Import Duties Advisory Committee for the substitution of a specific for an ad valorem duty if they so desire.
