§ 8. Sir KINGSLEY WOOD
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has made any representation to the Government of the United States concerning the proposals of the British Government for a tariff truce?
§ Sir K. WOOD
Has not the reply of the United States reached the right hon. Gentleman through the League of Nations saying that they cannot usefully participate in these proposals or join a conference?
§ Mr. ARTHUR MICHAEL SAMUEL
What is the good of participating in this proposal in view of the fact that leading commercial nations of the world have decided to have nothing whatever to do with it?
I think that that question has already been answered by the President of the Board of Trade.
§ 48. Mr. DOUGLAS HACKING
asked the Prime Minister whether he will give an undertaking that any provisional agreement relating to a tariff truce will not be ratified without the approval of both Houses of Parliament?
The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay Mac Donald)
I would refer the right hon. Member to the answer which I gave on Monday last in reply to a question to the hon. Member for Horncastle (Mr. Haslam).
