HC Deb 21 June 1938 vol 337 c911W
Captain P. Macdonald

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the recent troubles in the West Indies and the difficulties of the sugar industry which provides the principal means of support for the Colonies, he will review the adequacy of the provisions of Section 1 of the Finance Act, 1934, under which additional preference was given to a limited quantity of Colonial sugar?

Sir J. Simon

I am unable at the present time to add anything to the statement on this subject made in the Debate on 14th June by my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies.
