§ Sir K. WOOD
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has had any communication or is in a position to make a statement concerning the new tariff proposals of the Egyptian Government?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
A translation of the draft Egyptian Customs Tariff issued on 17th December was published in the Board of Trade Journal for 9th January. The tariff itself came into operation on 19th February. The issue of the Board of Trade Journal for 27th February shows in detail the points in which the tariff in force differs from the original draft.
