wished to know from his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether it was his intention to introduce any measure to prevent the adulteration of coffee by chicory and other means, so as to afford protection to those who sent coffee into the country?

said, that he would state his views generally on the subject when making his financial statement; but with regard to the prohibition respecting the use of chicory with coffee, it was not his intention to introduce any measure on that subject.
