HC Deb 25 April 1910 vol 17 c184W

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been drawn to the Government Report on Irish tobacco, which declares that the manufacturers who bought the crop of 1907 have reported favourably upon it; and whether, in view of the promising nature of this industry and the employment it gives, he will recommend that further financial aid is extended to it under the new Development Act?


I hope that the Development Commission will be constituted shortly, and they will then be able to consider this matter.
