§ SIR CHARLES McLAREN (Leicestershire, Bosworth)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if preserved milk artificially sweetened is within the scope of the Sugar Convention; whether Switzerland or any other Continental country now grants a bounty on exported sugar; and whether preserved milk coming from any such country will be now excluded from our imports.
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. GERALD BALFOUR,) Leeds, Central
Preserved milk if it contains "in a notable proportion artificially incorporated sugar" is among the articles assimilated to sugar for the purpose of Article 1 of the Sugar Convention. Russia and Denmark are the only Continental countries which have so far been found by the Permanent Commission to grant export bounties on sugar. No preserved milk appears to be imported into the United Kingdom from either of these countries.
