HC Deb 08 March 1900 vol 80 c394
COLONEL MILWARD (Stratford-upon Avon)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the promise he has made to consider any restrictions preventing the growth of tobacco in Ireland, and to endeavour to remove them, he will also endeavour to remove the restrictive conditions preventing the growth of sugar in England, Scotland, and Ireland generally, should the experiments now in progress prove that without the restrictive conditions referred to sugar beet would be a large and profitable crop for the farmers of this country.


I am not aware of any restrictive conditions on the growth of sugar in the United Kingdom.
