HC Deb 24 June 1924 vol 175 c245
55. Mr. MILLS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if any representations have been made by the tobacco growers of Nyasaland as to the operation of the Preference duties

The SECRETARY of STATE for the COLONIES (Mr. Thomas)

In March, 1923, the tobacco growers of Nyasaland joined a conference of tobacco growers at Capetown in making representations in favour of increased Preference on Empire tobacco. These representations were communicated to the Board of Trade.


Is the right hon. Gentleman going to take any action to give the overseas Dominions satisfaction with regard to the question of Preference?


The House decided that question the other day.
