§ 49. Sir C. CAYZER
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the complaint by chambers of commerce that import licences to Denmark are being granted for only a small percentage of the quota agreed on between this country and Denmark; and whether he can make a statement on the subject?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the BOARD of TRADE (Dr. Burgin)
My right hon. Friend has received numerous complaints, and at the request of His Majesty's Government a Danish delegation came to London last week to discuss the grievances of United Kingdom exporters. Proposals have been submitted to the delegation by His Majesty's Government with a view to remedying these grievances, and I understand that the delegation are returning to Denmark.
§ Captain DOWER
If Denmark continues to impose restrictions, will my hon. Friend consider the advisability of seeing that we impose similar restrictions, when opportunity arises, on their agricultural produce?
§ Dr. BURGIN
I think the House will agree that the proposals that have been submitted to the delegation by His Majesty's Government may be taken to be adequate.
