asked the Prime Minister whether he has taken any steps to carry into effect the resolution of the congress to the Chambers of Commerce of the Empire, in 1912, which was carried by 122 votes to 9, reaffirming its opinion in favour of preferential trade within the British Empire, and pledging itself to press upon the various Governments concerned the desirability of taking action to give effect to this principle?

No, Sir. His Majesty's Government are not prepared to take any action in the matter.
