HC Deb 21 February 1845 vol 77 c932
Sir William Clay

begged leave to put a question to the right hon. the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the subject of the Sugar Duties. He wished to know what was the intention of Her Majesty's Government as to the time when the proposed alteration in the Sugar Duties should be carried into effect after the passing of the Bill?

The Chancellor of the Exchequer

said, that it was intended the reduction should take place immediately after the day on which the Resolutions should have been agreed to in the Committee, without waiting for the passing of the Bill.
