§ 12. Sir A. KNOX
asked the President of the Board of Trade what would be the revenue from a levy of ½d. per lb. on imports of chilled and frozen beef and frozen mutton and lamb from the Dominions and 2d. per lb. on similar imports from foreign countries?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
On the basis of the quantities imported during 1935, the yield of levies on the commodities and of the amounts stated in the question would have been about £11,250,000.
§ Mr. THORNE
Has the right hon. Gentleman calculated the amount that would have to be charged to the consumer?
