§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
The Import Duties Advisory Committee is, as its name implies, an advisory body and does not issue orders. Excluding recommendations relating to the licensing of individual consignments of goods it has made 309 recommendations. Of these 309 the Treasury decided not to give effect to one, namely, a recommendation relating to electric lamps. In that case a voluntary agreement for the regulation of imports was reached.
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
If my hon. Friend means how many recommendations are still under consideration by the Treasury, I think there are about six.
