The following Question stood upon the Order Paper in the name of Mr. PERRY:6. "To ask the President of the Board of Trade, if his attention has been called to the increase of 20 per cent. imposed on the sea freights of goods shipped from the ports of Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and Harlingen to London by various London shipping companies as from the 28th September, 1931; and whether these increased charges to the importer will be considered by the Government under the Food Prices Bill now before Parliament.
§ Mr. R. A. TAYLOR
I wish to ask if we can have a reply to the question standing in the name of the hen. Member for Kettering (Mr. Perry), as it has some bearing on one of the Bills which will be under discussion later.
