§ 6. Mr. BROCKLEBANK (for Mr. RAMSDEN)
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is aware that certificates of origin for Turkey have now to be vised by a Turkish Consul, which is an inconvenience to British manufacturers and merchants; and whether he will make representations to the Turkish Government with a view to their accepting a certificate from a chamber of commerce?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. The necessity for authentication by a Turkish Consul of certificates of origin for Turkey is laid down in Article 7 of the Commercial Convention signed at Lausanne on the 24th July, 1923. In the circumstances no useful purpose would be served by making the representations suggested by the hon. Member.
