asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will submit a Return to the House showing the output of sugar from the Kelham and Cautley factories from the time they have been free from the Sugar Duty?

I have been asked to reply. The Kelham sugar factory has not operated since the Government consented in March, 1922, to remit the Excise Duty on sugar produced from home-grown beet. The whole of last season's beet crop was worked at the Cautley sugar factory, 7,011 tons of white sugar being produced.
