asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether his attention has been called to the imposition of an Export Duty by the Spanish Government of 25 pesetas per ton on cork in sheets or slabs, and of 5 pesetas per ton on cork waste or shavings: whether he is aware of the effect this will have on the cost of finished goods made from these raw materials; and whether he has made any representations to the Spanish Government on the subject?
