§ 48. Mr. CAPORN
asked the Prime Minister whether, having regard to the changed conditions and the additional information now available as a result of tariff experience, and with a view to saving the time and expense involved in individual trade applications to the Import Duties Advisory Committee, the Government will take action to secure the re- 9 consideration by that committee of the Additional Import Duties (No. 1) Order, 1932?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)
I have been asked to reply. It is open to the committee at any time to reconsider all or any of the duties imposed on their recommendation. I have no power to interfere with them in the performance of their statutory functions, and it would be improper for me to attempt to do so.
