HC Deb 23 March 1937 vol 321 c2725
15. Mr. Day

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the difficulties experienced by British traders and commercial houses doing business with Germany owing to the various financial restrictions in force in that country; and will he give particulars of what steps have been taken or are in contemplation to assist British traders with Germany?

Mr. Runciman

I would draw the attention of the hon. Member to the arrangements made in the Anglo-German Payments Agreement of 1934, for facilitating the export trade of this country.

Mr. Day

Is it not a fact that traders are having considerable difficulty in getting payment at the present time from Germany?

Mr. Runciman

Yes, Sir, but I am afraid that that is not peculiar to one country only.
