§ 13. Mr. MANDER
asked the President of the Board of Trade the present position with regard to clearing negotiations with Turkey?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I would refer to the reply I gave on the 29th November to the hon. and gallant Member for Blackpool (Captain Erskine-Bolst) regarding negotiations with Turkey, and would add that the instructions referred to in that reply have now been sent to His Majesty's Ambassador at Angora.
§ Mr. MANDER
In view of the great importance of this question from a business point of view, can the right hon. Gentleman give some indication as to when an agreement is likely to be reached?
