asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will change the regulations governing the importation of apples and pears under licence, so that the volume of fruit coming in during the home season is reduced and a corresponding increase made when the peak of the home season is over.

I do not propose to increase the severity of the quantitative restrictions at present applying to the import of apples and pears during the home season.
