My Lords, in the unavoidable absence of my noble friend Lord Brockway, I beg leave to put the Question standing in his name on the Order Paper.
§ [The Question was as follows:
§ To ask Her Majesty's Government what conclusions were reached at the Geneva international conference to negotiate a world agreement on sugar prices.]
§ LORD BESWICK
My Lords, the United Nations Sugar Conference opened in Geneva on April 17 and is expected to last for some weeks. It is the hope of Her Majesty's Government that the Conference will result in the conclusion of an effective International Sugar Agreement.
