The Chargé in France (Marriner) to the Secretary of State
[Received May 24.]
Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of the Department’s telegraphic instruction No. 131 of May 13, 2 p.m., 1933, requesting me to make representations with regard to the discrimination against American products imported into France introduced through the negotiation by the French Government of double taxation agreements with third countries providing that the products of such third countries shall be relieved from the increased French import turnover tax.
In view of the importance of this question I felt it preferable to make the representations asked by the Department in written form. A copy of my note, which I today left with M. Léger, Secretary General of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, is enclosed for the information of the Department.
