From the Archives: Tea Trade in England.

Presiding at the annual meeting of the India Tea Association [in London}, Mr. James Steel, Chairman, drew attention to the policy outlined in the report which the Committee considered would meet the situation without Government interference namely, that Government should bring home tea at blue-book rates and if necessary fix a maximum selling price. The Committee regarded the attitude of the Food Ministry in regard to tea drafts as entirely unjustifiable. All efforts to adjust the matter having failed the Committee had no alternative but to ask for arbitration. The matter was now sub-judice.
