§ MR. A. WILLIAMSON (Elgin and Nairn)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the importance of the trade of Liverpool and district, competent representation will be given forthwith to Liverpool on the newly organised Commercial Intelligence Committee, in accordance with the memorial which has recently been presented to the President of the Board of Trade by the Incorporated Chamber of Commerce of Liverpool.
§ MR. LLOYD-GEORGE
A memorial containing such a request has been received within the last few days, and is under consideration. I fully recognise the desirability of having such an important commercial centre as Liverpool represented, but there are difficulties in the constitution of the Committee. These I am now considering, and I hope to be able to announce the decision of the Board shortly.
