§ MR. BLACK
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any communications have passed between the Foreign Office and Germany as to the action of Germany in imposing differential duties against Canadian products; and, if so, whether these communications contain any indication of the possibility of Great Britain retaliating by imposing special duties on German imports into the United Kingdom.
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY OF STATE FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Lord CRANBORNE,) Rochester
The answer to the first Question is in the affirmative. I am not in a position to make any further statement at present.
