HC Deb 07 July 1881 vol 263 c234

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If he will lay upon the Table of the House a Copy of the Letter he has addressed to the Chambers of Commerce with reference to the English translation of the French Tariff, asked for by the noble Lord the Member for Liverpool; and, if he will give a list of the Chambers to which he has written?


, in reply, said, that if the hon. Member wished for this Return, and moved for a copy of the Circular, and also for copies of the replies that had been received, he should be very glad to give it, as an unopposed Return. He might say that the Circular had been addressed to 59 Chambers of Commerce, and the Board of Trade had received 20 replies—7 of the replies being in favour of having a translation, and 13, including the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, against it.
