§ 27. Mr. LAMBERT
asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs if, in the interest of inter-Imperial trade, he will represent to the Australian government that an export bounty of 3d. per pound on butter, plus another lid. per pound due to depreciated currency, constitutes unfair competition with the British producers?
The SECRETARY of STATE for DOMINION AFFAIRS (Mr. J. H. Thomas)
The position with regard to the market for dairy produce in this country has been the subject of consultation with representatives of Dominion Governments, and discussions on the matter axe still proceeding. I am unable at present to make any further statement.
§ Mr. LAMBERT
Will my right hon. Friend answer the question I have put on the Paper—whether he will represent to the Australian Government that these bounties, owing to depreciated currency, constitute unfair competition with the home producer?
