§ 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?
