HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 c177
MR. REMNANT (Finsbury, Holborn)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether, in the event of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the Brussels Convention, it is the intention of His Majesty's Government to take any steps, by the imposition of countervailing duties or otherwise, to check the unfair competition of bounty-fed sugar with sugar which has not received such bounties.


The position of His Majesty's Government with respect to countervailing duties and other methods of restricting the sources from which we may draw our supplies of sugar was clearly explained in the statement made to the House on the 6th instant by my right hon. friend the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.† To that statement I have nothing to add.
