HC Deb 20 May 1892 vol 4 c1447
MR. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs a question on which I have given him private notice—whether Her Majesty's Government has received any reply to their representation respecting import duties on linen yarns in Spain in view of the expiry of the Treaty before the 30th June.


We have received a telegram this morning from Her Majesty's Ambassador at Madrid, in which he states that the Spanish Government are prepared to charge the same rate of duty which has up to the present been paid upon linen yarns, and that it will be continued until the 30th June, and after that date the new tariff will come into force.
