§ 52. Sir PHILIP DAWSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that an application has been submitted to the Import Duties Advisory Committee for a revision of the tariffs on manufactured or semi-manufactured articles from timber; and whether he will take any steps possible to facilitate the early consideration of this urgent matter?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative; but I have no doubt that the Committee will avoid any unnecessary delay in dealing with any application made to them.
