asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether any estimate has been made as to the probable revenue, if any, from the duties levied under the Abnormal Importations (Customs Duties) Act?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

No, Sir. Any such estimate would necessarily be based on so many uncertain factors as to possess no real value.

May I ask if the right hon. Gentleman and the Treasury were consulted about the putting on of these various duties before the list was published?

Mr. CHAMBERLAIN:

Yes, Sir.
