§ MR. LOUGH
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Board of Trade whether, at the recent sittings of the Brussels Sugar Convention, the case of Russia has been farther considered; whether any decision has yet been arrived at with regard to the amount of countervailing duties that should be charged by countries adopting that procedure on Russian sugar; and whether His Majesty's Government can see their way to withdraw the prohibition now existing against the importation of 598 sugar from. Russia and Argentina into this country.
§ MR. BONAR LAW
I am informed that the question of Russian sugar was not considered at the recent meeting of the Permanent Sugar Commission. The Answer to the last part of the Question is in the negative.
