HC Deb 28 March 1939 vol 345 c1866
24. Mr. Maxwell

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any agreement has been reached with Denmark regarding increased purchases by that coontry from the United Kingdom?

Mr. Stanley

Yes, Sir. Certain trade matters have recently been the subject of discussion with the competent Danish authorities. I am glad to be able to inform the House that the Danish Government have made an offer which has been accepted by His Majesty's Government, to provide facilities during 1939 for increasing by about 23,000,000 kroner the imports of a wide range of United Kingdom goods.

Sir Joseph Lamb

Does that range include agricultural products?

Mr. Stanley

It is a very wide list, but, in agreement with the Danish Government, particulars of it have always been kept confidential.
