INDIA (OTTAWA AGREEMENT). (Hansard, 21 April 1936)
HC Deb 21 April 1936 vol 311 cc11-2
11. Mr. H. G. WILLIAMS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether notice has been given by the Government of India for the termination of the agreement concluded at Ottawa in 1932?

Mr. RUNCIMAN

No, Sir.

13. Mr. LEWIS

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will get into touch with the Government of India forthwith with a view to ascertaining what alterations, if any, are contemplated by them with regard to preferential treatment for British goods in the Indian market when the Ottawa Agreement ceases to operate, in order that the British Government may have time to consider what alterations, if any, they may in consequence desire to introduce with regard to the preferential treatment of Indian goods in the British market?

Mr. RUNCIMAN

Notice of denunciation of the agreement has not been received. In any case, there are a number of matters affecting United Kingdom trade interests which His Majesty's Government will wish to raise in any negotiations which may ensue, including matters affecting the preferential treatment of Indian goods in this market.
