HC Deb 12 April 1921 vol 140 cc950-1W

asked the President of the Board of Trade to whom were the stocks held by the Sugar Commission sold at its winding up; at what price; and under what conditions?


The Government's stocks of raw sugar have been sold to the refiners whose businesses have been controlled during the War, at prices determined week by week in relation to those ruling in the world's markets, and on the usual trade conditions. The Government's stocks of refined sugar are for sale at current prices to any trader who may desire to purchase them.
