HC Deb 17 April 1905 vol 145 c281
MR. BLACK (Banffshire)

To ask the First Lord of the Treasury if he can now state whether the Government's policy is to promote or to oppose the preferential or protective taxation of food.

(Answered by Mr. A. J. Balfour.) I do not think that anything would be gained by attempting to deal with the fiscal controversy by Parliamentary Question and Answer.
