HC Deb 18 November 1918 vol 110 cc3190-1
46. Major HUNT

asked the Prime Minister whether, seeing the importance of the agricultural industry to the safety and prosperity of the country, he can say whether it is the policy of the Government to make producers of competing agricultural goods living outside the United Kingdom pay in import duties not less than the amount paid in internal taxation by producers of the same kind of agricultural goods living within the United Kingdom?


I can add nothing to the statement on this subject made by the Prime Minister on Saturday and in his letter to myself of 2nd November, which appear in the Press this morning.
