Proposals for the revision of the Customs Tariff are at. present before the Unitel States Legislature, but I am unable to forecast to what extent they will be adopted. I will consider, in consultation with my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, whether there is any action which His Majesty's Government can usefully take in the matter.
In view of the encouraging cheers from my hon. Friends, may I ask the hon. Gentleman if he will consider the advisability of sending a, specifically strong deputation to the United States, including the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for Leith (Captain W. Benn) to protest against the Safeguarding of Industries Act in another country?
I think that is a proposal which ought to be addressed to the hon. and gallant Member for Leith. I am sure that either with or without his assistance all the steps that can he taken will be taken.
