HC Deb 14 March 1911 vol 22 c2049

asked whether any representations had been received from British traders as to the effect of existing Canadian Customs regulations in impeding the course of British trade; and, if so, whether, following the example of the Canada-United States reciprocity arrangement, he can enter into communications with the Canadian Government to secure similarly sympathetic treatment for British traders in the Canadian market?


Complaints have occasionally been received as to the effect of particular Canadian regulations on the trade of the complainants, and where thought advisable the cases have been brought to the notice of the Canadian Government. I have no reason to suppose that the Canadian Government will accord to United States traders different or better treatment in regard to Customs regulations than they accord to British traders.
