I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the Government have now received any information in reference to any legislation or other steps to be taken by the United States of America, or any of the Governments of European countries to prohibit gambling in agricultural commodities; whether the Government have given any consideration to this important question; and whether they intend proposing any legislation on the subject during the present Session?

Papers containing this information were issued yesterday. (Commercial, No. 2, 1895, C. 7,645.) I do not expect the Government will be able to propose legislation on this subject during the present Session.
