§ 17. Mr. Osborne
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will issue an import licence immediately for a small parcel of garden seeds sent from Rochester, U.S.A., by a sister to Mr. T. L. Ground, Park House, Louth, Lincolnshire, for which he applied on 14th December and again on 9th January without receiving any reply; and whether he will state the reason for delay in dealing with correspondence.
§ Mr. H. Wilson
A licence has now been issued. The hon. Member has been given full details in the reply to his letter of 20th January.
§ Mr. Osborne
Will the Minister see that we get quicker service from his Department, and that our constituents do not have to wait for this service until we put down a Question?
§ Mr. Wilson
I do not accept that imputation in the slightest, and certainly not as regards these cases.
