HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 cc1585-6W
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 an 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.
