HC Deb 19 April 1923 vol 162 cc2303-4W

also asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether it is proposed to obtain evidence and views of British manufacturers of agricultural and engineering machinery and materials on the question of improving the home industry and trade with British Overseas Dominions at the forthcoming Imperial Economic Conference in London; and what are the arrangements?


I have been asked to reply. As indicated by the Prime Minister on the 20th March in reply to a question by the hon. Member for Dartford (Mr. Jarrett), it is my intention to take steps to consult the representatives of commerce and industry in this country with regard to matters in which they are interested in connection with the forthcoming Imperial Economic Conference. I hope to arrange for such consultation at an early date.
