§ MR. STARKEY (Nottinghamshire, Newark)
To ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the temporary admission of barley into France upon which the duty is remitted still continues; and also what amount of French malt was imported into this country last month.
(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George.) The system of "temporary admission" under which the import duty on barley is remitted, on condition of an equivalent quantity of malt being exported, is still in operation in France. The quantity of French malt imported into the United Kingdom during the last month was 350 cwts.
