HC Deb 04 March 1946 vol 420 cc5-6
12. Mr. Ernest Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any statement to make on recent trade negotiations with representatives of the Czechoslovak Government.

Sir S. Cripps

Discussions with Czechoslovak experts on points arising out of the visit last October of an official Czechoslovak Trade Delegation are still proceeding. I am most anxious to encourage the development of trade between the two countries, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement on the outcome of these discussions
