HC Deb 07 April 1842 vol 62 c4
Mr. Ward

wished to know whether a report, which he had heard, was true, namely, that the Government was about to impose a duty of 150 per cent, on foreign salmon?

Sir R. Peel

said, that the hon. Member possessed an advantage over him, for he had not heard the report to which reference was made; but he could set the hon. Gentleman's mind at rest by declaring that the report was altogether without foundation.
