HC Deb 23 June 1955 vol 542 c92W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the inadequacy of the existing import duties in their effect on regulating imports of strawberries during the early part of the English strawberry season; and if he will take steps to remedy this.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

No; it is too early yet to judge the adequacy of the increases in the rates of duty which were imposed last year.
