HC Deb 25 June 1952 vol 502 cc178-9W
64. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he will consider with the Treasury and Commonwealth Relations Office the setting up of an inter-Departmental committee to review the effect of export taxes on production, in particular of tea and tobacco.

Mr. Lyttelton

The question raised by my hon. Friend is important but it is one primarily for Colonial Governments and I do not think that there is any need for special inter-Departmental machinery of the kind suggested.
