§ Mr. HARWOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, if he would consider the advisability of sending out from this country an independent commission to inquire into the causes of the failure of the cotton crop last season in Egypt; and whether the necessary regulations were properly observed?
§ Sir E. GREY
There does not seem to be any occasion of sending out a Commission, seeing that two are already at work. The administrative measures prescribed by the law of 1905 for the destruction of the cotton - worm were put in force throughout the country.
