asked the Minister of Agriculture whether in view of the effect of dumping on agriculure, horticulture, and fruit-growing in this country, he can state what products are dumped, or have been dumped, within the last 12 months; and whether, if he does not possess the information, he will institute an inquiry to obtain it with the object of ensuring adequate protection to the producing interests concerned?

If the hon. Member will let me know explicitly what he understands by dumping, I will see whether it is possible to supply him with the information required.

Will the right hon. Gentleman say whether dumping is regarded in this country as the sending into this country of goods produced at wages which would not be tolerated here?
