§ MR. HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if a representative of the trading interests of Canada, Australasia, South Africa, and India, will be appointed to the Committee now in process of formation, to consider the Treaties of Commerce which are about to expire?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
No, Sir. It is proposed to confine this Committee to representatives of the commercial interests in the United Kingdom.
§ SIR M. HICKS BEACH
The commercial policy of our self-governing colonies, with one great exception, is altogether different from our own.
