§ 86. Mr. De Chair
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury how much money is raised annually by tariffs on articles of imported foodstuffs which are also grown in this country?
§ Captain Wallace
It is not possible to give a precise figure, but the answer is approximately £29,000,000 for the year ended 31st March, 1938.
§ Mr. De Chair
May we assume, therefore, that there is approximately that sum available for the protection of agriculture?
