HC Deb 13 March 1958 vol 584 c78W
85. Mr. Osborne

asked the President of the Board of Trade what communication he has received from the Canadian Government on the subject of joint negotiations with China for the resumption of greater trade; and, since unemployment is growing on both sides of the Atlantic, what steps he is proposing to take, by means of such joint negotiations, to increase Anglo-Chinese trade and so provide more work in Great Britain.

Sir D. Eccles

No suggestion has been received from the Canadian Government that we should undertake joint negotiations with China of the kind my hon. Friend suggests.
