HC Deb 30 July 1862 vol 168 c1035

said, he wished to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether, looking to the difficulties to which the malting trade had been subjected by the shortening the malt credits, he would consent to give such reasonable extension of credit to the maltsters as may be consistent with his financial arrangements?


said, he understood the question had reference not to the past crop, but to the crop next to come. The question being general in its terms, he could only give a general reply. He should be open to consider any plan which, without deranging the annual system of credit, would give the relief desired. He thought it was possible that it might be done without great cost; and if there were any cost, it might be provided for.

House adjourned at five minutes before Six o'clock.
