§ Mr. BOULT0N
(by Private Notice) asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he can make any statement regarding the negotiations for a trade agreement with Argentina to take the place of the existing agreement, which expires on 7th November?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
Considerable progress has been made in the negotiations with Argentina, but some points still remain to be settled. These important negotiations must soon be concluded, but in order that every facility may be given arrangements are being made with the Argentine Government to continue the existing agreement in force until 20th November.
