§ 25. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Food the average price in American cents per lb. that he gave for Cuban sugar since 1st January, 1947, to the latest available date.
§ Sir W. Smithers
Will the Minister confirm or deny what I am informed on good authority is the position—that under free enterprise, the Americans paid four cents a pound for Cuban sugar and under State bulk buying the Minister of Food paid five and a half cents for the same sugar?
