§ 55. Colonel DAY
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the reason for the recent 1104 Treasury Order restricting the amount of wines of Dominion importation that may be withdrawn from bond for home consumption during the period from the first week in February until May next?
§ The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Churchill)
The Order referred to applies to all imported wine, whether from Empire or non-Empire sources. I gave the reason for issuing the Order in my reply to a supplementary question by the hon. Member for the Hillsborough Division on the 10th February.
§ Colonel DAY
Can the right hon. Gentleman explain the modified restrictions of the original Order that he mentioned the other day?
