HC Deb 20 March 1934 vol 287 cc1043-4W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the increase of 31 per cent. in the import of clocks from countries, other than Germany, in the last six months of 1933, as compared with the corresponding period of 1932; and whether, in view of the failure of the trade agreement with Germany to produce the results anticipated, he will re- fuse to support the extension of most-favoured-nation treatment to other countries?


The imports of clocks from Germany are nearly four times as great as those from all other foreign countries put together, and I do not appreciate what my hon. Friend has in mind.
