Glass Tumblers.

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:

21.

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the only glass tumblers exempted from the proposed duty under the Safe guarding of Industries Act, Part II draft Order, are tumblers which are only pressed, whereas the tumblers referred to in Section 7 of the Committee's report are in the main not pressed glassware at all; and whether he will consider bringing the draft Order in this connection into conformity with the recommendations contained in both the majority and minority reports of the Committee in question?

I am advised that "Belgian tumblers," which are the tumblers referred to in Section 7 of the report, are made by pressing. The last part of the question, accordingly, does not arise.
