HC Deb 27 February 1936 vol 309 c673W

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether his attention has been called to the refusal of the French Government to agree to the request that British coal should be exported to France under the same system as is applied to other exporting countries, namely, under the system of certificates of origin instead of export licences; and will he state what action the Government propose taking in this matter?


His Majesty's Government's request in the matter is at present under consideration by the French Government and no reply has yet been received.
