HC Deb 17 October 1916 vol 86 c390W

asked the Prime Minister, if the Government has notified or intends to notify the Governments of the Allied Powers of their acceptance of the resolutions agreed to by the representatives of all the Allied Powers at the Conference at Paris?


I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to a similar question asked by the hon. Member for the Wellington Division of Shropshire on 9th August, to the effect that as the Conference was held at Paris the approval of the resolutions by His Majesty's Government was naturally notified to the French Government. His Majesty's Government do not consider it necessary to make any further notification.


asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the resolutions at the Paris Economic Conference, private groups of firms in this country are entitled to prepare for and organise interworking as before with German groups of firms; whether he will consider the desirability of requiring that such interworking shall at least receive the sanction and approval of the Board of Trade; and what steps in that case he proposes to take to notify the trading interests concerned who may be contemplating the adoption of such a policy?


If the hon. Gentleman will furnish me with particulars of the cases which he has in mind I will give them my careful consideration, with a view to determining whether any action is necessary or advisable.
