HC Deb 24 February 1948 vol 447 c316W
81. Mr. Gammans

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the concern felt by cigar manufacturers in Jamaica that the engagements entered into under the Geneva Agreements may prejudice their interests in the British market and if he will give an assurance on this subject.

Mr. Bottomley

No. We have not under this Agreement undertaken any reduction of the current margin of Imperial Preference in respect of cigars.
