HC Deb 27 March 1933 vol 276 cc669-70
23. Lord SCONE

asked the Minister of Agriculture whether he is aware that the

mission, circulate the reply in the OFFICIAL RPORT.

Following is the answer:

imports of tinned cream, condensed whole milk, and milk powders amounted, during the month of January last, to the equivalent of over 6,000,000 gallons of milk, all from foreign sources; and whether, as these imports are to a large extent subsidised, he is prepared to apply the policy of prohibition to such imports?


I have no power to prohibit these imports.


Will my right hon. and gallant Friend state whether he contemplates taking action to secure the necessary powers?
