§ 56. Major Dorman-Smith
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any existing trade agreement precludes the making of an order under the Import Duties Act increasing the existing duties 960 on dead fowls and on egg products imported from foreign sources?
§ Mr. Runciman
No trade agreement precludes increased duties on liquid eggs or on egg products, or on dead poultry other than dead guinea fowls. The duty on these latter is limited to 10 per cent. ad valorem by the agreement with Poland.
§ Major Dorman-Smith
Will the right hon. Gentleman pass that information on to the appropriate quarters with a view to something being done immediately for the poultry producers?
