Captain A. EVANS
asked the President of the Board of Trade if the discussions which are taking place between His Majesty's Ambassador and the Italian Government on the question of the landing duty imposed on coal imported into that country by sea have yet been concluded; and whether he has any statement to make to the House?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
The answer to both parts of the question is in the negative. I will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as a reply from the Italian Government is received.
