HC Deb 14 July 1936 vol 314 c1862
42. Mr. LYONS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any negotiations are pending with the Government of the United States of America with reference to a trade treaty between this country and the United States?


I would refer my hon. and learned Friend to the reply given to the hon. Member for Gower (Mr. Grenfell) on 17th December last, to which I have nothing to add.


In view of the important commercial and other interests involved, will the right hon. Gentleman consider taking steps towards effecting some commercial agreement between the two countries?


Such information as I have on the matter I gave to the hon. Member for Gower (Mr. Grenfell) last December.


May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he thinks there is any possible chance of coming to a trade agreement with America until you pay your debt to America?
