§ MR. REES
To ask the Secretary of State for India whether it is proposed to raise funds for pushing the sale and increasing the consumption of natural indigo by means of a cess similar to that sanctioned by the Government of India in respect of tea; and whether he will entertain favourably such a proposal should it come before him.
(Answred by Mr. Secretary Morley.) I have not received such a proposal. I must reserve my decision until I have a scheme before me and learn how it is supported by the Indian indigo trade.
