§ 61. Mr. LEACH
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why new potatoes are excluded from the recommendation to abolish the duty of £1 and £2 per ton contained in Command Paper 5135; and has he noted the threat of the Import Duties Advisory Committee on page 3 to reimpose the duty if prices fall too far?
I presume that the Committee did not consider that any action on their part was called for in relation to new potatoes. I have noted that the Committee propose to review the question of duties on main-crop potatoes when the present abnormal situation with regard to supplies has ceased to operate; but I would not describe their statement as a threat.
