To ask the President of the Board of Trade what were the average prices of wheat per imperial quarter in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Italy, respectively, at the end of July, 1904; what were the duties on imported wheat per imperial quarter in each of these countries at that time; what were the approximate percentages of imported wheat in the total wheat supply of each of these countries; and whether the average prices include both the imported and the home-grown wheat. (Answered by Mr. Gerald Balfour.) The official sources from which the above foreign prices are taken do not state whether imported wheat is included or not.
