HC Deb 21 July 1959 vol 609 c1069
58. Mr. Willey

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will remove the import duties on soya bean meal and on oilseed proteins.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

If an application is made by users for the removal or alteration of these duties, I will consider it.

Mr. Willey

Will the Minister of State consider it anyway? We are removing the tariff on bacon and it would seem sensible to take the reciprocal step of removing tariffs on imported feeding-stuffs which add to the costs of our home producers.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

It is normal practice for the users to apply if they think that they have a case.
