HC Deb 06 July 1938 vol 338 c390
79. Mr. H. G. Williams

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any statement to make with regard to the progress of the negotiations for the revision of the Ottawa Trade Agreement with Australia?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

Discussions with the Commonwealth Ministers now in London have been proceeding for some weeks, but I am not in a position at present to make any statement in regard to them.

Mr. Williams

May I ask whether these negotiations are being hampered in any way because of our commitments to the United States of America?

Mr. Hudson

No, Sir.
