§ SIR J. KENNAWAY (Devon, Honiton)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the provisions of Article 91 of the Brussels Conference, which enacted that each Power shall determine the limits of the zone of prohibition of alcoholic liquors in its possessions or protectorates and shall be bound to notify the same to other Powers within six months, have been carried out by the contracting Powers; and whether, under Article 95, information has been communicated by the Powers through the Office at Brussels relating to the traffic in spirituous liquors within the respective territories of the contracting Powers?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir E. GREY,) Northumberland, Berwick
The provisions of Article 91 in regard to zones of prohibition have been carried out by the Governments of the Congo Free State, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, Portugal, and Turkey by notifications which have been communicated to the Brussels Bureau and published by them. Information in regard the traffic in spirituous liquors has been similarly communicated by the same Powers, and by France under Article 95, and published by the Bureau.
