§ MR. ILLINGWORTH
asked the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, Whether the Government of the United States have taken a part in the Conference on Sugar Bounties in the same manner and on the same footing as the Governments of the other countries concerned; and, whether he is able to give the House any information concerning the probability of the United States Government joining in and adopting the conclusions of the Conference?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE (Sir JAMES FERGUSSON) (Manchester, N.E.)
The Representative of the United States attended the Sugar Conference to listen to its proceedings and report the same, but without committing his Government. I am not able to inform the House concerning the course which the Government of the United States may take at future stages.
