§ Sir A. Bossom
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will review the tariffs on cut flowers and pot plants in accordance with the suggestions already put to him by the National Farmers' Union; and if he cannot revise them before the forthcoming summer, if he will see that imports do not exceed those of 1953.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
The applications by the National Farmers' Union for revised tariffs on cut flowers and plants are still under consideration. Until whatever decisions that may be taken can be implemented, the current import arrangements will be maintained.
