HC Deb 09 March 1903 vol 119 cc103-4
MR. ALFRED DAVIES (Carmarthen Boroughs)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can now supplement his answer of the 18th December last† by stating what arrangements have been made for British and Irish commercial displays at the coming St. Louis Exposition; and whether a Royal Commission will be appointed in connection therewith.


I am not yet able to give definite information to the House. Arrangements are in course of being made, and gentlemen have been asked to serve upon the body which is to represent this country, but its composition, the question of its title, and the sum to be granted, cannot be finally decided until we have more information as to the support we may expect from those interested in commerce. Perhaps the hon. Member will put another Question later on.


I will put a further Question next Monday.

MB. FLAVIN (Kerry, N.)

Have any Irishmen been invited?


I must ask for notice of the Question.

SIR A. ROLLIT (Islington, S.)

Have communications been opened with chambers of commerce on the subject?


I must ask for notice also, I am afraid.
