§ 19. Captain REID
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in what way up to the present time has the Empire grant of £1,000,000 towards Empire development been used?
§ Mr. ORMSBY-GORE
If, as I understand, my hon. Friend refers to the proposed grant for the encouragement of the marketing of Empire produce in this country, I would refer him to the reply given by the Prime Minister on the 23rd November, to which I cannot add anything.
§ 22. Captain REID
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he will state what British firms, if any, have recently started branches in the Dominions?
I am aware that certain British firms have in recent years started branches in the Dominions, but I am not in a position to give a comprehensive list. If my hon. and gallant Friend will let me know more precisely the nature of the information which he desires, I will do my best to supply it to him.
§ 51. Mr. RENNIE SMITH
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the urgent representations of British agriculturists, he can see his way to include Great Britain as a part of the British Empire for the purpose of the spending of £1,000,000 recently allocated to the Imperial Economic Committee in order to improve Empire markets in this country?
§ The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Baldwin)
I can add nothing to the answer which I gave on the 23rd November, in reply to questions on this subject, of which I am sending the hon. Member a copy.
