HC Deb 26 July 1934 vol 292 c1924
27. Captain HEILGERS

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the gentlemen's agreement given by the brewers to purchase as large a quantity of English barley as possible will operate again as regards the sale of this year's crop of malting barley?

The CHANCELLOR of the EXCHEQUER (Mr. Chamberlain)

I have been in communication with the Brewers' Society and am informed that they have already strongly recommended their members to continue to adhere to the undertaking given to me last year in regard to the purchase of home-grown barley.
