asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in connection with the new American tariff, he will endeavour to secure representation to the American Government for transmission to the Financial Committee of the Senate that, as the proposed tariff rates will stop the importation of bono china into America, it might be possible to insert a new Clause in the Tariff Bill exempting bone china from any additional tariff, such china being defined by a chemical formula?

I am in consultation with the Acting Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs as to the best method of securing that this and similar questions receive full consideration in the United States.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that this is a very urgent matter, and a Bill is now before the House, and is he also aware that we understand that representations of this sort are likely to be well received?
