HC Deb 25 February 1930 vol 235 cc2023-4
14. Mr. ALBERY

asked the Lord Privy Seal if he can give the House any information concerning his recent discussions with representatives of the Canadian wheat pool?


My discussions with the wheat pool and with representatives of the millers chiefly concerned the possibility of securing greater regularity in the shipment of wheat during the St. Lawrence season in order that ships going out might quote a freight rate for outward cargo based on the certainty of a return cargo. It was not found possible to make any definite agreement to this end, but I have every hope that these conversations will lead to a more regular exchange of Canadian wheat for British products.

Lieut.-Colonel HENEAGE

Are the interests of the English wheat producer being properly safeguarded?
