§ 80. Mr. JOHN
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether any reduction in taxation is contemplated or has taken place in the Barbadoes; and whether, before such reduction takes place, he will advise the promotion of a 1198 policy of agricultural expansion based on the needs of the small producers?
Mr. J. H. THOMAS
Two taxes have been suspended or reduced. The Government have already taken a number of steps designed to improve the position of the small producers.
