HC Deb 27 July 1933 vol 280 c2773
62. Captain HEILGERS

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether the brewers have undertaken to use any definite quantity of English barley in the brewing of beer; and, if not, whether negotiations are still proceeding with a view to arriving at an agreed figure?


As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the terms of the letter from the chairman of the Brewers' Society, which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer read in the course of his Budget Speech, and, as regards the second part, to the reply which my hon. Friend the Financial Secretary to the Treasury gave to the right hon. Member for South Molten (Mr. Lambert) on 20th June, of which I am sending him a copy.
