HC Deb 07 May 1903 vol 122 c26

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the advisability of altering the proposed bonding arrangements so that the millers of the United Kingdom may not be placed in a worse position than the importers of Foreign manufactured flour, who, under the suggested arrangement, will have their Hour in bond up to 1st of July and can then immediately deliver to their customers, whereas the miller will have to sell flour manufactured from taxed wheat against foreign manufactured flour duty free taken out of bond.


I am giving the matter close consideration and hope to make a statement very shortly.
