HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 cc637-8W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether there are any restrictions in force preventing the import of Canadian whisky into the United Kingdom; and, if so, can such restrictions be removed so as to allow supplies to be imported, in order to augment the present short supplies of Scotch and Irish whisky?


Spirits other than brandy and rum are at present excepted from the rule that all goods produced in the British Empire should be admitted without restrictions. This exception is being maintained pending the examination of the somewhat difficult points involved in this connection.
