MANCHESTER REJECTS FREE TRADE The Manchester Chamber of Commerce at its annuai meeting, on Monday, discussed the ques- tion of "Trade After the War." The Board of Directors had prepared a special memorandum, the adoption of which was moved by the Presi- dent, and this declared for the undesirability at present of considering the question of a reversion to piotective duties. There was strong opposi- tion, led by Mr Derwent Simpson, who moved an amendment that the report be referred back, and said that the directors of the Chamber stood alone and were causing the rest of the country to say that Manchester favoured free trade with Germany, whatever were the consequences. There were, it was also said, too many foreign merchants in Manchester, and no good would be done till they were got rid of. The amendment referring the report back was carried by an over- whelming majority. The President announced that a vote would be taken, the result to be an- nounced at a meeting which would be held next week.
