HC Deb 18 December 1941 vol 376 c2090W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Undersecretary of State for the Colonies whether, in view of the increased cost of production and cost of living with which rice growers in British Guiana are having to contend, and the increase of only 20 cents per bag which the grower is being paid by the Rice Marketing Board, he will arrange that the charges for rice milling should be controlled, and the growers not subjected to arbitrary increases in these charges?

Mr. George Hall

I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply I gave yesterday to a Question on the same subject by the hon. Member for Dewsbury (Mr. Riley).
