HC Deb 31 October 1916 vol 86 cc1590-1W

asked the Secretary to the Board of Trade on what grounds the sixteen licences issued during the last two months for the importation of hops were granted; and what amounts were represented by each licence?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to the hon. and gallant Member for Maidstone on 16th August as to the considerations governing the issue of licences for hops. I am sending him a statement of the quantities covered by each licence.
