HC Deb 20 April 1937 vol 322 c1578
42. Mr. Chorlton

asked the President of the Board of Trade what is the present position relative to the trade agreements with Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Finland, and to their renewal?

Dr. Burgin

The agreements continue in force without renewal, subject to termination after four months' notice in the case of that with Denmark and six months' notice in the case of the others. My hon. Friend will appreciate that it is unnecessary and usually undesirable to give notice of termination of a trade agreement before negotiating its revision.

Sir Gifford Fox

Will my hon. Friend give an assurance that in the event of the trade agreement with Denmark being renewed, the position of poultry producers will be safeguarded?
