asked the Minister of Agriculture Whether in view of the fact that in November 40 per cent. of the wheat that came here was from Soviet Russia and some was sold down to 22s. a quarter, he will say what steps he is taking to counteract the effect on British agriculture of these sudden importations?
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the decision of the Soviet Russian authorities to increase the exportable surplus of grain in 1931 from 10 per cent. to 25 per cent.; and what measures the Government intend to take to prevent dumping of this produce in the United Kingdom?
I do not know the source of the hon. and gallant Member's figures, but I am aware that the Soviet Government are hoping to be able to increase the exportable surplus of grain. With regard to the second part of the question I would refer to the answer which I gave on 3rd November to a question by the hon. Member for Kingston-on-Thames (Sir G. Penny), a copy of which I am sending to the hon. and gallant Member.
