§ 49. Sir G. FOX
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is to be the constitution of the committee of inquiry into 36 the sugar-beet industry; and when this body will commence its investigations?
As the beet-sugar and sugar-refining industries are at present conferring with the object of putting forward agreed proposals for consideration, I have decided that it would be an advantage, pending the completion of these deliberations, to defer the appointment of the Committee to which my hon. Friend refers.
§ Mr. CHARLES WILLIAMS
Is there any chance of getting this subsidy done away with entirely and the sugar-beet industry put upon a sound basis?
If the right hon. Gentleman decides to take this subsidy away from sugar-beet, will he give the fishermen a chance?
