HC Deb 01 May 1911 vol 25 c41

I desire to ask the Prime Minister a question of which I have given him private notice, namely, whether his attention has been drawn to the cabled report of a banquet given to the Associated Press and the American Newspaper Publishing Association, at which President Taft appealed to his audience, as representing the American Press, to advocate reciprocity with Canada before it was too late, and before a system of preferential tariffs could be adopted binding the British Empire together; and if he will request His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington to cable a verbatim report of President Taft's speech, and lay the same on the Table of the House?


I must ask the hon. Member to put his question on the Paper in the ordinary way. My attention had not been called to the matter.
