§ 36. Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
asked the Prime Minister whether he will consider the desirability of approaching the Brazilian Government with a view to a trade agreement, having regard to the preferential tariffs now given by Brazil to the United States of America and to Belgium, and to the prestige enjoyed by this country in Latin America?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I have been asked to reply. This matter has had very careful consideration, but I do not think that any useful purpose would at present be served by approaching the Brazilian Government, whom I have no reason to suppose to be less reluctant than in the past to extend to this country the benefits of the special preferences accorded to the United States and Belgium.
§ Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
Is the right hon. Gentleman taking any steps to ascertain the desirability of making some further provision in this direction which will not preclude any concession being given to us which has already been given to the United States and to Belgium?
