§ The PRESIDENT of the BOARD of TRADE (Mr. Runciman)
As regards the first part of the question, I would refer my hon. and learned Friend to the reply given on 8th April to the hon. Member for Lincoln (Mr. Liddall). The answer to the second part is in the affirmative.
§ Mr. LYONS
In view of the apprehension which has been caused to British industry by the refusal to issue licences in the past, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he will be able to assure industry in general that the difficulties in future will be overcome by some condition being imposed on Denmark that these licences shall be reasonably issued?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
I would point out that in my reply I said that as a result of recent discussions it is proposed to safeguard the position in any new trade treaty.
