HC Deb 28 June 1926 vol 197 cc794-5

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether, following the recently successful British Industries Fair, he can inform the House what steps are being taken with regard to the next fair to be held; what will be the approximate date; and whether it is to be on an increased scale or not?

Mr. A. M. SAMUEL (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

It has been decided to hold the British Industries Fair in London and Birmingham from 21st February to 4th March, 1927. Forms of application for space have recently been issued and the publicity campaign is about to be initiated. In view of the great success of last year's fair and the steady flow of applications, I anticipate that the next fair will be on a considerably larger scale. I hope hon. Members will assist us in their constituencies by putting before manufacturers the advantages of joining in a great national effort and making the fair fully representative, since it is obvious that the more representative the sections are, the greater will be its attraction to trade buyers.


Will the hon. Gentleman let Members have particulars which they in their turn can put before manufacturers in their constituency?


Certainly I will do the best I can.

Forward to
