To ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether negotiations have taken place, and, if so, with what result, for the modification of the Persian tariff on British goods, in view of the tariff recently ratified between Russia and Persia.
(Answered by Lord Oranborne.) I would venture to draw the attention of the hon. Member to the answer which I returned to my hon. friend the Member for King's Lynn on 23rd February.‡ I am not yet in a position to give any further information.
