§ Mr. L. SMITH
asked the Minister of Agriculture if he is aware that experts have established a differentiation between malting barley and feeding barley; and whether, with a view to placing an additional duty upon imports of the former, he can state what are the objections of his Department to accepting such differentiation?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
As I stated in my announcement on the subject of agricultural policy on 11th February, the administrative feasibility of levying an additional Customs duty on malting barley is being examined. I am not at present in a position to add anything to this statement.
