HC Deb 16 December 1929 vol 233 cc991-2W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department the exact nature of the new Australian duties, and if these are increased upon the different hosiery imports from this country?


Particulars of the changes in the Australian Customs tariff, which came into force on 22nd November, were published on pages 669 to 675 of the Board of Trade Journal for 5th December, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy. They include substantial increases in the duties on socks and stockings. Further changes were introduced on 11th December, and full particulars of the changes will be published in the Journal for 19th December.
