HC Deb 23 November 1939 vol 353 c1433W
Major Milner

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether Spanish oranges are now coming in through the Spanish Government representative who is paying the dock dues in this country, and is merely giving the receivers delivery orders instead of bills of lading in the customary manner; and whether his Departmental officials are studying this procedure in view of the prejudicial effect on the trade of other importing countries?

Mr. Stanley

I have received no representations on the point raised in this question; but if the hon. and gallant Member will send me full particulars I will look into the matter.
