HC Deb 14 July 1961 vol 644 c82W
Dr. A. Thompson

asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has received regarding the new Australian tariff rates on flax canvas imported from the United Kingdom; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. Maudling

I have received representations from the Flax Spinners' and Manufacturers' Association of Great Britain about the incidence of these duties on flax canvas weighing over 20 oz. per sq. yd. I am considering, in the light of further information which I have received from the Association, whether any action would be appropriate.
