asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the Dutch rubber planters are willing to join in the rubber-growing restriction scheme if the extra duty on Java and Sumatra teas, making it Is. as against 10d. for British green teas, is remitted; and, if so, what is the attitude of his Department?
There is, I think, a good deal to be said on that subject. My hon. and gallant Friend had better reserve his exultations till we have the opportunity of discussing the matter.
