PARIS, (ft 1 )--The Chamber of deputies voted full powers to Premier Leon Blum Tuesday to regulate tariffs by decree until pecember, 1937. The bill also would increase government powers to prevent "dumping" of commodities. The vote was 3C5 to 217. The measure now goes to the senate. A lengthy discussion preceded the balloting with some speakers complaining that French agriculture has not been sufficiently protected, particularly against American' competition. Replying for the government, Commerce Minister Paul Bastid said the system of quotas must "be used -with prudence." The Blum government has tried to lighten tariffs to stimulate trade without compromising French interests, he declared.
