§ Mr. Hamilton Kerr
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a statement regarding the proposed negotiations with the United States Government, with a view to bartering surplus cotton in exchange for rubber and tin?
§ Mr. Stanley
No proposals relating to the barter of raw cotton and wheat for rubber and tin have been received from the United States Government. From a statement made by the State Department to the United States Press, it would seem that they have not yet completed their examination of the subject.
