§ 7. Colonel ROPNER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can make any further statement with regard to the expressed intention of the French Government to impose a further cut on the British coal import quota?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I am informed that an announcement has been issued by the French Mines Department to the effect that the proposed cut of 10 per cent. in the quota for United Kingdom coal has been suspended in view of the negotiations between the two Governments which are in contemplation.
