§ MR. FLYNN (Cork, N.)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the statement of M. Hezedues, Minister of Commerce in the Hungarian Chamber, on the 22nd instant, respecting the action of the Indian Legislative Council in imposing countervailing duties on bounty-fed sugar; also to the statement of M. Hezedues that the action of the Indian Government contravenes the most- 500 favoured-nation treaty between Great Britain and Austria-Hungary; and, if so, will the Foreign Office undertake to represent this view to the Indian Legislative Council?
§ MR. BRODRICK
These statements have not yet been brought to my attention; but all the circumstances were fully weighed before the imposition of countervailing duties on bounty-fed sugar was decided upon by the Indian Legislative Council.
