HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c20

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether there are at present any negotiations on the part of Her Majesty's Government or any other Government with a view to reassemble the Brussels Conference with respect to sugar bounties; and whether the French Government are now ready to join the other Governments in agreeing to modify or do away with their bounties on sugar.


No such negotiations are proceeding on the part of Her Majesty's Government, nor, so far as Her Majesty's Government are aware, on the part of any other Government. So far as I know, the French Government have made no declaration of change in their attitude as regards this question.

Forward to
