§ 15. Mr. ALBERY
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether he is aware that the Australian Commonwealth Government will shortly introduce in the Australian Parliament proposals with a view to improving the tariff preference at present enjoyed by British manufacturers; and if he can state that it is the definite policy of His Majesty's Government to encourage such Dominion legislation by seeking every available opportunity for taking action of a reciprocal nature?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. As regards the second part, I can assure my hon. Friend that His Majesty's Government will do its utmost to carry out the policy embodied in Resolution XXI of the Imperial War Conference, 1917.
