§ Sir H. HOPE
asked the President of the Board of Trade what figure the recently increased German subsidy on oats imported into Britain now amounts to; and whether he is taking any steps in the interest of British agriculture to curtail or end, this subsidised competition?53W
§ Mr. N. BUXTON
I have been asked to reply. As from the 13th May the face value of the import bond in respect of oats exported from Germany has been about 4s. 6d. per cwt. As regards the last part of the question, I have nothing to add to my previous statements on the subject.
