§ 6. Mr. HURD
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he can state the details of the new decree governing the importation of silk goods into France?
§ Sir R. HORNE
So far as I am aware, the new decree which it was proposed to issue in place of that of 23rd April has not yet been promulgated, and I have no information as to how silk goods will be treated, except that I have been given reason to hope that silk mourning crêpe will not be included in the new list of prohibited goods.
