HC Deb 08 November 1932 vol 270 cc194-5W

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether he has called the attention of the Canadian and Australian Governments to the prejudicial effect of the use by many of their exporters of subsidised foreign ships; and, if so, what has been the nature of their reply?
