§ Major Symonds
asked the President of the Board of Trade if for a limited period before Christmas he will restore the privilege of sending duty-free cigarettes to men in the B.A.O.R., etc., so that soldiers overseas can have an adequate supply of cigarettes for Christmas.
§ Mr. Ellis Smith
No, Sir. I am afraid that even a temporary restoration of the privilege is impracticable, and couldnot be now undertaken by the manufacturers.
