HC Deb 28 August 1907 vol 182 c447

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.
