HC Deb 23 June 1939 vol 348 c2612W
Lieutenant-Colonel Dower

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, as part of the policy for fostering Anglo-Rumanian trade, he has interviewed British wine-shippers with the object of encouraging the importation and sale here of light Rumanian wines?

Mr. Stanley

No, Sir. The matter would appear to be one for private initiative. I would point out that the arrangements made by His Majesty's Government in connection with the Anglo-Rumanian Payments Agreement are designed to promote the importation of Rumanian goods generally.
