HC Deb 06 February 1843 vol 66 cc197-8
Mr. Milner Gibson

begged to ask the right hon. Baronet opposite whether the Government intended to maintain the present prohibitory duty on foreign sugar?

Sir R. Peel

said, that, without intending anything like personal disrespect to the hon. Member, he must decline answering his question. To do so would be inconsistent with his duty, for he might be asked a similar question with respect to every other article upon which a duty existed.
