§ 50. Mr. HERBERT WILLIAMS
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been drawn to the arrangement which came into force on the 10th May last, under which Germany agreed to admit 40,000 kilogrammes of artificial horn from Holland at a reduced duty of 35 marks per 100 kilogrammes; whether His Majesty's Government has claimed from the German Government similar privileges for artificial horn entering Germany from this country; and, if so, what satisfaction has been received from the German Government?
§ Lieut. - Colonel COLVILLE
The answers to the first two parts of the question are in the affirmative. The German Government admit His Majesty's Government's claim in principle, but have raised certain questions of administrative detail which are now under consideration.
Captain ARTHUR EVANS
Is it not a fact that some time ago the German Government prohibited entirely the use of foreign horn in Germany, and is this declaration a departure from previous policy?
