§ 22. Mr. CHORLTON
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether all negotiations with the other nations concerned having as their object the termination of the Congo Basin Treaties have now ceased; and what further steps will be or are being taken to assist the restoration of our textile trade with the Central and East African countries concerned?
§ Mr. RUNCIMAN
There have been no negotiations of the description indicated in the first part of the question. With regard to the second part, I am unable to add anything to the answer which was given to my hon. Friend on 9th December last.
