, Mr. ARMSTRONG. Before the orders of the day are called, I would like to ask the hon. the Finance Minister a few questions with regard to the German arrangement which the hon. gentleman brought down last evening. Is what is called the German conventional tariff the lowest German tariff? Does the schedule that has been placed in our hands contain all the articles that are likely to go into Germany under that favoured clause and are we giving to Germany access to our markets for all German goods under our general tariff while the German people are only granting to us a portion of their most favourable tariff? Will the minister be good enough to bring down the letters and negotiations leading up to the present arrangement between this government and Germany?
