HC Deb 08 April 1925 vol 182 c2266W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the rates quoted in November, 1924, from Germany to Bilbao and Barcelona, were 17s. 6d. per 1,000 kilos for steel, wire or tools; whether the English rate per 1,016 kilos to the two places named for steel was 25s. and 30s., respectively, for wire 40s. and 50s., respectively, and for tools 60s. and 70s., respectively; that the German rate to Musel and Vigo was 19s. per 1,000 kilos and the English rate per 1,016 kilos was 25s., 40s. and 60e., respectively; the reason for the differences; and whether any steps are being taken towards the removal of such serious handicaps to British trade?


I would refer the hon. Member to the answer which I gave yesterday to the two oral questions he addressed to me.
