§ 71. Commander BELLAIRS
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what has been the rise in the percentage of the Empire supply of tobacco to this country since a preference was granted in 1928 over what was sent from the Empire the year before?
§ Mr. PETHICK-LAWRENCE
The preference on Empire tobacco was first granted in 1919, and was increased to the present amounts in 1925. That being so, I am not quite clear as to what figures the hon. and gallant Member desires, but if he will let me know I will endeavour to supply them.
