§ 4. Captain Conant
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the alarming increase in the importation of foreign carpets and the consequential reduction in employment, he will request the Import Duties Advisory Committee to make an early recommendation with regard to the application for increased duties which is at present under their consideration?
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 8th July last to the hon. and gallant Member for Tiverton (Lieut.-Colonel Acland-Troyte).
