HC Deb 23 June 1948 vol 452 c145W
92. Mr. Turton

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Government has yet accepted the International Wheat Agreement, Command Paper No. 7382; and which Governments have so far acceded to this Agreement.

Mr. McNeil

His Majesty's Government have not yet formally ratified the International Wheat Agreement, but intend to deposit their instrument of acceptance with the United States Government by 1st July. According to our latest information only Canada has as yet deposited its acceptance. It is provided in the Agreement that acceptance shall be deposited by 1st July or, in certain circumstances, after that date.
