The information requested by my hon. Friend is available only in respect of British Guiana, British Honduras, Trinidad, Grenada, and Barbados, and covers the six months ended June, 1942. During that period a total quantity of 97,410 gallons of ale, beer and stout and 60,548 gallons of spirits was imported into the Colonies named.
Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that some months ago, when this issue was raised along with the question of foodstuffs, hon. Members received information that this trade was being encouraged to keep open post-war markets?
