§ SIR CHARLES DILKE
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is able to communicate to the House information as to any labour treaty announced in France as recently concluded between His Majesty's Government and the French Republic.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
Communications on the subject are passing, but I am 1080 not in a position to make any further statement at the present time. No treaty has so far been concluded.
