Mr. De la Bère
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the Government will consider inserting in every trade treaty a clause authorising the raising or lowering of the tariff wall in proportion to the changes in the other party's currency?
§ Mr. Stanley
Such a system would be administratively impracticable. It would in any case have the undesirable effect of introducing great uncertainty in trade. 707W I would, however, remind my hon. Friend that most commercial agreements are terminable at short notice.
