§ MR. C. E. PRICE (Edinburgh, Central)
I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any of the Colonies in the British Empire give a bounty upon any kind or quality of sugar; and, if so, what is the amount of the bounty so given, and by which of the Colonies.
§ THE UNDER - SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE COLONIES (MR. CHURCHILL, Manchester, N.W.)
No bounties are given in any of the Crown Colonies. With regard to the Colonies possessing responsible government, the bounties which, as estimated by the Permanent Sugar Commission, are given in 1433 those Colonies, with the calculations upon which those estimates are based, will be found stated in the Papers (C. 2094) relating to the Sugar Convention, which were laid before Parliament in June, 1904.
