§ 70. Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will consider the desirability of urging upon the United States Government that some preferential treatment should be extended to imports from this country, having regard to the fact that while our American liabilities must largely be discharged in goods, yet British merchants are faced with the greatest difficulties in entering the American market by reason of the high tariff barrier?
§ Mr. BALDWIN
I have great sympathy with my hon. and gallant. Friend's object; but I do not think it possible to take any special steps in the matter.
§ Sir J. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
Is it a fact that the United States Government has granted a preference to other countries, and will the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of urging this on the United States Government?
