§ MR. JACOB BRIGHT (Manchester, S.W.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there are any negotiations on foot between Her Majesty's Government and the Government of Spain, with the object of putting a check to smuggling at Gibraltar by interfering with the freedom of trade?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY or STATE FOR THE COLONIES (Baron H. DE WORMS,) Liverpool, East Toxteth
No further negotiations have taken place since I answered a question on this subject by the hon. Member two years ago. I may add that smuggling by land has diminished of late, owing to additional regulations which have been made.
