HC Deb 20 February 1933 vol 274 cc1451-2

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there was any dumping of foreign-grown wheat in the 12 months ended 31st December, 1932; if so, whether the foreign Governments granted any subsidy; and what were the countries concerned?

Lieut-Colonel COLVILLE

The hon. Member will find particulars of the quantities and values of wheat imported into this country from the various sources of supply during the year 1932 in the Monthly Accounts relating to Trade and Navigation of the United Kingdom for that year. Several European countries include wheat in their schemes of assistance to agriculture but whether these schemes of assistance amount to a bounty upon export, is not clear.
