§ 30. Sir K. WOOD
asked the President of the Board of Lade whether he has now any further information to give to the House concerning the operations of 1087 the Tariff Truce; and if he proposes to take any further steps to secure the reduction of tariffs?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
The reduction of tariffs is, as I have previously explained, not dealt with in the Commercial Convention or so-called Tariff Truce, but is to form the subject of negotiations, along with other questions, under the Protocol regarding Further Negotiations. The League of Nations is at present taking certain preliminary steps with a view to these negotiations.
§ Mr. ARTHUR MICHAEL SAMUEL
Will the right hon. Gentleman obtain a copy of the recently issued bankers' resolution and send it to Geneva, as the resolution will have more effect in reducing hostile tariffs than any action of the Tariff Truce Conference?
