LONDON, March 11
Mr Asquith, at the Associated Chambers of Commerce dinner, said that 1913 was a record year. There were signs of diminution and some slackness in British Home and overseas trade, but business was conducted on broader and sounder lines than ,in any previous period, and greater elasticity was shown. There was little reason to anticipate serious depression.
