§ *SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will inform the House as to the progress of negotiations with reference to the proposed conference of the European Powers concerned in Africa for the further regulation of the liquor trade in their several possessions?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (MR. G. CURZON, Lancashire, Southport)
I am afraid I cannot at this stage make any statement as to the progress of negotiations. The matter is, however, being proceeded with.
