HC Deb 09 June 1902 vol 109 c93
MR. D. A. THOMAS (Merthyr Tydvil)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can give an assurance that, should definite proposals, upon which the Colonics may he generally agreed, be submitted to His Majesty's Government in favour of the establishment of a system of mutual trade preference within the Empire, the House of Commons will be consulted before the Government is committed by any expression of approval to such a policy.


I am unable to give an answer to such a hypothetical Question.
