HC Deb 08 August 1901 vol 99 c45

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any information has reached the foreign Office of a proposed modification in the Customs tariff of Persia; if so, whether due notice will be given to British merchants previous to the introduction of a radical change, and whether he would state the nature of the scheme.


The answer to the first question of my hon. friend is in the affirmative. The question of whether any notice is required or is practicable will receive consideration. I am not yet in a position to make any further statement on the subject.
