§ Squadron-Leader Donner
asked the Minister of Food whether he is aware that on 1st January there were 6,829 tons of sugar available for sale and export in Jamaica, and 30,584 tons in British Guiana available for shipment; and what steps he is taking to import this sugar into this country.
§ Sir B. Smith
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer given to him on 25th January in reply to his Question addressed to my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for the Colonies. This sugar is already purchased under the contract of the Ministry of Food, and the greater part has already been lifted.
