HC Deb 18 July 1907 vol 178 c931

I beg to ask the Prime Minister whether, in view of the variety and complexity of the subjects to be debated on the Foreign Office Vote, a short sitting may be allocated for discussing the recent departure in the policy with regard to the Sugar Convention, announced by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs.


No, Sir, I see no advantage in a discussion at this stage. The proposals of His Majesty's Government respecting the Sugar Convention are known and are being considered by other Governments who are parties to the Convention. Till the result of this consideration is known at is not possible for the Government to make any further statement.
