§ 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.
