HC Deb 02 April 1903 vol 120 c910
MR. RUNCIMAN (Dewsbury)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the fact that the publication of the Imperial Department of Agriculture for the West Indies called "Information relating to Cotton Cultivation in the West Indies, 1903," is not to be obtained in London, and no copies can arrive in England for some time, he can state how many estates in the West Indies which were previously devoted to the cultivation of sugar are now being devoted to the cultivation of cotton.


A copy of the publication in question has been sent to the hon. Member, and two copies have been placed in the Library of the House. I am informed that more copies can be obtained from the West India Committee, Billiter Square Buildings, E.G., and that the London publishers, Messrs. Dulan and Company, will shortly have a fresh supply.
