§ 15. Mr. Charles Brown
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether and in what manner representatives of the Dominions are taking part in the negotiations concerning a new Anglo-American trade agreement?
The Governments of the overseas Dominions are not taking part in the negotiations for a trade agreement between the United Kingdom and the United States, but they have been, and will continue to be, kept informed of the progress of the discussions. The hon. Member will be aware that negotiations between Canada and the United States for a new trade agreement are likely to take place at Washington concurrently with the negotiations between the United Kingdom and the United States.
§ 19. Mr. Roland Robinson
asked the President of the Board of Trade what progress has been made in the negotiations for a trade agreement with the United States of America?
There is nothing that I can usefully add at present to the reply which I gave on 1st February to questions by the hon. Members for Colchester (Mr. Lewis) and Wolverhampton, East (Mr. Mander) except that the Delegation which is to assist His Majesty's Ambassador in the negotiations will leave for Washington to-morrow.
