HC Deb 20 May 1930 vol 239 cc223-4W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any information regarding the new tariff about to be imposed by Germany which affects the export trade of Poland; and whether he has received information to the effect that as a result of this new tariff Poland has announced her intention of denouncing the Tariff Truce Convention?


Particulars of the increased customs duties imposed by the German law of 15th April, to which I assume the hon. Member refers, were published in the Board of Trade Journal of 8th May (page 643). With regard to the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to questions by the hon. Members for Moseley (Mr. Hannon) and Farnham (Mr. A. M. Samuel) on 6th May, a copy of which I am sending to him.
