SIR GILBERT PARKER
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether the commercial attaches have been withdrawn from Berlin and other Continental capitals; and, if so, does this action mean an abandonment of the policy of commercial representation at embassies abroad.
§ MR. RUNCIMAN
My right hon. friend would refer the hon. Member to the Board of Trade Journal, No. 544, of May 2nd last, on page 213 of which will be found a statement giving the information desired. The new arrangements therein detailed took effect on July 1st last.
