William Knox Child, a local farmer, gives evidence to the Opposed Bill Committee on the transport of hops from Kent to London.
Continued on page 2.
Q: Are hops often sent from Tunbridge to London by the Medway?
A: I don't think many are sent by the River. Very few, it is an uncertain mode of conveyance and it is very important for the growers to have hops in London quickly. I have been a great sufferer myself by that.
