§ 44. Sir F. SANDERSON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will consider favourably increasing the preference on Empire-grown sugar by 1s. per cwt., which, whilst not being prejudicial to the consumer at home, would materially assist the growers in the West Indies and other parts of the Empire during the present depression in the sugar-growing industry?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Representations have been made to me on the subject of the preference on Empire saw, but I am not prepared to make any statement at present.
