Oral Answers to Questions — Safeguarding of Industries Act. – in the House of Commons on 10th July 1922.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. FOOT:

20.

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has taken the opinion of the Law Officers of the Crown on the question of a refund of duties paid on articles subsequently ordered by the Lord Chancellor's referee to be removed from the lists, seeing that Section 5 of Part I of the Act does not appear to preclude the refund of these duties, but merely says without prejudice to the validity of anything previously done thereunder?

The answer is in the negative. I may add that notice has been given by two hon. Members of an Amendment to the Finance Bill, which will give the House opportunity to decide this particular matter.
