§ 30. Mr. LIDDALL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the fact that the value of the motor-cars imported during the first six months of this yeas amounted to £716,937, approximately double the value imported in the same period of 1933 and nearly four times the value imported in the same period of 1932; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with the growing threat to the British motor-car, industry?
I am aware of the figures of the importation of motorcars to which my hon. Friend refers, but I would draw his attention to the fact that the importations of parts and accessories of motor-cars have substantially declined since 1932. The duty on motorcars, in common with other Budget duties, will come up for review in the ordinary course before the next Budget, and all relevant considerations, including those to which my hon. Friend has drawn attention, will be borne in mind.
