§ MR. ALEXANDER CROSS (Glasgow, Camlachie)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether there is any bounty upon the deport of flax in Russia, and Belgium, and, if so, what is its amount per ton; and whether there is any bounty on the export of wheat from Argentina; and, if so, what is its amount?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Mr. C. T. RITCHIE,) Croydon
I have no knowledge of any such bounties.
§ MR. ALEXANDER CROSS
asked whether the right hon. Gentleman would make further inquiries into the matter?
§ MR. RITCHIE
If the hon. Gentleman will furnish me with the information he possesses, I will consider it, and see whether there is any ground for further inquiry.
