§ 37. Mr. LIDDALL (for Mr. PIKE)
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why the British milling industry failed to obtain drawback of duty upon exports of flour made wholly or in part from wheat which had already borne duties; and whether the scheme, based upon the Finance Act, 1932, submitted to the Import Duties Advisory Committee in May, 1933, is still under active consideration?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Duff Cooper)
This application was advertised by the committee in 1933, but there was, I understand, delay on the part of the applicants in furnishing the necessary detailed information, and the committee thought it desirable to advertise it again at the end of March this year. It is now under active consideration.
