§ 104. Vice-Admiral TAYLOR
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Anglo-French Convention in respect of Nigeria and the Gold Coast can now be revised; and what action the Government propose to take?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
The Anglo-French West African Convention of 1898 as a whole is not subject to revision. Article 9 of the Convention, which my hon. and gallant Friend doubtless has in mind, could, however, be terminated by either party on giving a year's notice of denunciation. The position is under consideration, but I am unable to make any statement at present.
§ Vice-Admiral TAYLOR
Does not my hon. Friend consider that it would be to the advantage of this country that those British Colonies should give a preference for British goods over foreign goods?
