HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1551W
Sir T. Moore

asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies what steps he proposes to take to remedy the present disparity in the issue to Jamaica of special preference certificates; and whether he is aware that under existing arrangements Jamaica receives for her export sugar approximately 10s. per ton less than other Colonies by reason of this disparity?

Mr. George Hall

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to replies to Questions on this subject by my hon. Friend the Member for Durham, Consett (Mr. David Adams) on 8th May, 1940, and the hon. and gallant Member for Paddington, South (Vice-Admiral Taylor) on 5th June, 1940. It is not possible at present to add anything to those replies.
