§ MR. LYNCH (Yorkshire, W.R., Ripon)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what States have to signify their consent to the proposed increase in the Turkish customs duties before such increase can be levied; which of thesis States have already signified their consent either finally or subject to ratification by their Parliaments; and whether he can state when the increase is likely to conic into force.
§ MR. RUNCIMAN
The assent of all the Powers has now been finally given to the increase in the Turkish customs duties, and my right hon. friend under stands that the increase was to come into force on the 12th instant.
