HC Deb 23 November 1933 vol 283 c251
37. Mr. BOSSOM

asked the President of the Board of Trade if it is his intention to negotiate new commercial treaties with Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia; and at what date does he anticipate that negotiations will commence?


It is intended to negotiate Commercial Agreements with these countries in the near future, but the dates for the opening of negotiations have not yet been fixed.


Will the Minister, when conducting those negotiations, bear in mind the intense disappointment that has been caused by previous negotiations not resulting in preferential tariffs to British industry?
