HC Deb 03 December 1936 vol 318 cc1445-6W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the high prices now being demanded in respect of turkeys for the Christmas trade; and whether, in view of the hardship to consumers which occurred last Christmas, he will take steps to reconsider the import duty on turkeys as an emergency matter?


Any representations in regard to the duty on foreign turkeys should be addressed to the Import Duties Advisory Committee, on whose recommendation it was imposed.
