I PREFERENCE FOR i Å LLIES, I FREE TRADE SHIBBOLETH VANISHES. ",I -? 11 u r 1 Lil Wlll LX: me atuwiae locally orman u. factarers, merchants, and shippers with re- gard to trade after the war? With a view of obtaining representative opinion on this much discarded and h-i?My c<?mpiex problem a representative of the ?'Da?iy Pcst'? in?rviewed Mr. T. P. Cook, President at the Swansea Chamber of Com- E aroe, on Wednesday. In --It probability," said Mr. Cook, "we shall depart from the old party shibboleth, I but to what extent, until the Government proposals are put before the community, it is imp.os&bl to for?ca?t. That aLMethiag will ha.v? to be dcn-3 is evident, and all parties eeem agreed tna.t preferential treatment should accorded to our Allies on the one hand, and that restrictive conditions should I be imposed upon enemy oountries on the other. Where We were Misled. "Evidence seems to be accumulating that Germany for years, by what was sup- posed to be nothin.g more nor less than peace- ful commerodal enterprise, was all the time penet.ratin.g the eommercial. life of- the nations, acquiring valuable sources of sup- port with a view, as is now realised, of a much more commercial expansion, namely world-wide domination. "The Association of Chamber's of Com- merce meet in London on February 29th for the express purpose of formulating a. series Of recommendations t-o the Oorernment, with a view of curtailing German and Austrian activity in neratral inaikets in the future. Some of these proposals have been circulated amongst Chambers. Many of them are such as r.an be accepted without hesitation. Others are so drastic as to give rise to great. differences of opinion, and are unlikely to my mind to be carried into effect. It is a welcome sign, however, that the Government itself realises the importance of the position, and hae*already ha.d experts working upon this complex question for some time past, notwithstanding the preoccupa tion of everyone concerned with the prose- cut-ion of the war. The intention is, after the meeting in London in February, to &eek an interview with the Premier and lay the proposals which wåU be agreed t> after decision before him. Voles of the Chambers of Commerce. Oil- thing is certain that the eonsidered opinion of Chambers of Commerce through- out the Kingdom will be utilised by the Government to a very large extent, and it 18, therefore, very desirable that every Cham- her should carefully exajrnu" aU these pro- posals in order that the. recognised organ of expression for f-ornmercial views, namely, the Association of Chambers of Commerce, may fully represent the careful considera- tion of tnose most closely affected through- out the country. The Swansea Chamber Pf Commerce will appoint representatives to this special meeting in February. The Swansea Cham- ber, at its next Council meeting, will con- sider the question of trade, and, if thought fit, wall forward any suggestion or represen- tation which they may come to, in order to .y ? if? to, in or d er to have some discussion at the special meeting of the Association of Chambers in London.'
