British Trade Relations with Canada - A Synopsis of An Address by Sir Robert Donald


Sir Robert's opinion that there was little chance of British industry reconquering the markets of Continental Europe. A break to be made with Great Britain's fiscal traditions. The need to get into closer relations with the Dominions. Tariffs in Europe. The Continent of Europe as a collection of armed citadels against British goods. The need for British manufacturers and merchants to study the requirements in the Dominions or adapt themselves to Canadian conditions. How the Government can help. Participation in the Canadian National Exhibition. How to increase trade with Canada. The state of the coal trade in Britain. Easing the burden of taxation. The Empire nearer to self-sufficiency in terms raw material, cotton, copper, tin and other products indispensable for industry.
