HC Deb 25 July 1923 vol 167 cc484-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any agreement has been made, or any note passed, between the British Minister at Bucharest and the Rumanian Government in regard to commercial relations between Rumania and Great Britain; and, if so, will he lay the particulars upon the Table of the House?


An agreement was effected in May last by exchange of notes between His Majesty's Minister in Bucharest and the Rumanian Ministry for Foreign Affairs, by virtue of which, pending the conclusion of a new Treaty of Commerce and Navigation between the two countries, the commer- cial relations between the United Kingdom and Rumania shall be based on the accord of most-favoured-nation treatment. The text of the notes will be laid shortly upon the Table of the House.
