asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now make a statement on the negotiations which were carried on with the Government of Cuba regarding sugar and tobacco.

I am not in a position to make any statement about the trade negotiations with Cuba since they are still in progress. I can, however, assure the House that His Majesty's Government will continue to have full regard in these negotiations to the Commonwealth interest in this matter. If any agreement is concluded, full details will be made available to the House in the usual way.
