HC Deb 08 April 1935 vol 300 c780
36. Captain P. MACDONALD

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the trade negotiations now in progress between the Chinese and Japanese Governments, and the proposal that a monopoly of the manufactured cotton trade shall be given to Japan in return for China supplying Japan with raw cotton at specially favourable rates; and whether he proposes to take any action in this matter to safeguard British interests?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

I have no information regarding any such negotiations.
