HC Deb 22 May 1843 vol 69 c688
Dr. Bowring

begged to know from the right hon. Gentleman the President of the Board of Trade whether, having seen in the public journals that the legislature of Prince Edward's Island levied a duty of 4s. 6d. on foreign wheat, her Majesty's Government would extend the boon—if boon it was—they were conferring on Canada to the colony of Prince Edward's Island?

Mr. Gladstone

said, that the question of the hon. Gentleman was the first intimation he had of such a bill being passed. Her Majesty's Government could not, therefore, have considered the subject.
