HC Deb 07 June 1917 vol 94 cc366-7W
General CROFT

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will consider the appointing to the Sugar Com- mission representatives who are interested in sugar production within the Empire?


I have been asked to reply. There is, I understand, no present intention to enlarge either the scope or the personnel of the Sugar Commission. I may remind the hon. and gallant Member that the Commission is concerned with the purchase and importation of sugar, but not with its production.
