§ Captain WRIGHT
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any relaxation in the prohibition regulations passed last June has been permitted and licences permitting the importation of foreign hops granted, and, if so, to what persons or firms?
As regards the first part of the question, I am sending my hon. and gallant Friend a copy of an1586W answer given on 16th August last to the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone, in which the position was explained. As regards the second part, it is contrary to precedent to give the names of individuals. and firms to whom licences have been issued.
