HC Deb 18 May 1916 vol 82 c1659W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the injury to the market gardening trade caused by the present inability to import from Holland the baskets necessary for the conveyance of fruit and vegetables to market, and having regard to the need of avoiding delay in the food supply, he will consider the advisability of granting facilities for the transport of the large number of baskets now awaiting shipment in Holland?


Licences are already being granted for the importation of moderate quantities of baskets for the conveyance of fruit.
