HC Deb 12 June 1906 vol 158 c816
DR. RUTHERFORD (Middlesex, Brentford)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will state what action has been taken, in accordance with Article 12 of the Anglo-Egyptian Agreement of 1899, in which the contracting parties undertake to pay special attention to the enforcement of the Brussels Act of 1890 prohibiting the importation or manufacture of spirituous liquors in the region of the zone where, on account of religious, or from other motives, the use of distilled liquors does not exist, or has not been developed.


The Government of the Soudan have drawn up various regulations for controlling and licensing the import and sale of alcoholic liquors in their territory. These regulations have been modified and added to from time to time, and the matter is one which engages the constant attention of the Soudanese Government.
