HC Deb 07 March 1939 vol 344 c1932W
Sir P. Hurd

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the forthcoming trade discussions with Germany, Russia, and other foreign countries, the Government is consulting the Governments of the Dominions to ascertain how their interests may best be promoted by these discussions?

Mr. Stanley

As I have already indicated, the discussions to which my hon. Friend refers are intended to be of an informal and exploratory character. The Governments of the Dominions will naturally be kept in touch with any developments which seem likely to be of interest to them.
