HC Deb 26 April 1932 vol 265 cc218-9W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if a block of marble and sawn random scantling are respectively being treated as raw material by the officials of his Department or as finished articles?


The classification of a block of marble for purposes of the trade returns would depend upon the condition of the particular consignment at the time of importation. As regards sawn random scantling, if my hon. Friend would care to furnish me with a more precise description of the commodity he has in mind, I will cause the necessary inquiries to be made.
