Hon. J. L. ILSLEY (Minister of Finance):
I thought the house might be interested in a telegram which has been received on behalf of the British government from the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs:
London, May 2, 1941.
High Commissioner for Canada has informed us of further wide and substantial tariff concessions on United Kingdom goods for which the Canadian budget provides. We appreciate to the full the magnitude and generosity of these measures which are yet another example of Canada's wholehearted cooperation. We attach the greatest value to our export trade with Canada, and, within the limits of our resources, no effort will be spared to take every advantage 0f these concessions for which we wish to express our most grateful thanks.
Subtopic: CONCESSIONS ON UNITED KINGDOM GOODS PROVIDED FOR IN BUDGET
