§ 3. Sir HENRY MADEN
asked the Secretary of State for India whether any representation has been made to the Government of India by any chamber of commerce or any other public body in India in favour of the increase of Import Duties on cotton manufactures; and, if so, whether he will agree to their publication?
§ 5. Mr. BARTON
asked the Secretary of State for India whether, pending the promised reconsideration at the end of the War, it may be taken that the Import and Excise Duties on Indian cotton goods will remain unaltered, and that 4 per cent. Will continue to be the difference between the two?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
Yes, Sir; that is our intention, and I do not think that anything will occur to make it impossible of fulfilment.
