§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade when he proposes to introduce the Bill for the exclusion of the goods made in the prisons of other countries promised in Her Majesty's Most Gracious Speech, and if he will take care to press it forward sufficiently early in the Session to avoid its being shelved for want of time, having regard to the refusal of Foreign Governments to enter into an agreement for the non-exportation of such goods?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
I am afraid I cannot add anything to the answer I have already given. We shall be very glad to introduce the Bill as soon as the condition of public business offers a prospect of our being able to proceed with it.
§ SIR HOWARD VINCENT
I beg to give notice that, to make sure, I will to-morrow ask leave to introduce a Bill myself.
