HC Deb 08 May 1933 vol 277 c1221
40. Mr. PIKE

asked the Prime Minister whether in view of the expressed intention of the United States of America to seek a. complete tariff truce during the sitting of the World Economic Conference, he will state what is the attitude of His Majesty's Government towards this proposal; and if he will give an assurance that no such agreement will be entered into without the consent of this House having previously been obtained?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Ramsay MacDonald)

With reference to the first part of the question, I have nothing to add at present to the statement which I made on this subject on Thursday last. As regards the second part, an opportunity can arise for a discussion if it be required on a Vote of Supply for the Department concerned.
