HC Deb 06 November 1934 vol 293 cc803-4
21. Mr. REMER

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the communications from the delegation visiting Japan as representing the Federation of British Industries, under the chairmanship of Lord Barnby; and, if so, when he can make a statement to the House as to the results of this mission?


I have not received any communications from the delegation and, as they will be reporting to the Federation of British Industries and not to His Majesty's Government, I could not undertake to make a statement as to the results of the mission.


Was the delegation in any sense official?


It was a delegation from the Federation of British Industries.
