§ MR. HUMPHREYS-OWEN (Montgomeryshire)
I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Government of Canada has given bounties on lead, and that of New Zealand is about to organise the sale of New Zealand mutton in competition with English mutton; and, if so, whether the Government will take measures to protect British producers of lead and mutton against this unfair competition, in the same manner as they have protected the West Indian sugar planters.
§ MR. A. J. BALFOUR
I have no official information on the matters to which the hon. Gentleman refers in his Question.
