asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any attempt has been made by his Department to assess the relative heights of the tariff walls of different countries since 1927 and, if so, with what result?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
My hon. Friend may care to refer to the information contained in the "Statistical Tables relating to British and Foreign Trade and Industry" (Cmd. 3737) as to the rates of duty in 1914, 1924 and 1930, charged on typical United Kingdom exports on importation into certain countries overseas.
