HC Deb 17 August 1916 vol 85 c2083W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for India whether he can, before the House rises, announce that the double export tax now being paid on Travancore tea has been abated?


Since replying to my hon. Friend's question on the 5th July I have received no further information as to the negotiations then in progress. I have inquired by telegraph and will acquaint my hon. Friend with the result.
