§ 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?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
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.
§ Mr. BAILEY
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?
