§ 7. Lieut.-Commander Fletcher (for Mr. Garro Jones)
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, with a view to the forthcoming visit of the economic mission from Japan, he will inaugurate discussions with representatives of the cotton and other industries, with a view to the promotion of agreements for each branch of industry concerned between the British exporting interests and the corresponding exporters' association in Japan for the voluntary regulation of exports?
§ Mr. Runciman
I should welcome agreements of the kind to which the hon. Member refers; but any such proposals are matters for consideration in the first place by the industries concerned.
