HC Deb 21 November 1927 vol 210 c1402
49. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Prime Minister what steps are being taken to increase the sale of British goods in the British Dominions; and whether any progress has been made with any attempts that have been made to secure such increase?

Captain HACKING (Secretary, Over-seas Trade Department)

I have been asked to reply. His Majesty's Trade Commissioners have been appointed in all the Dominions with the express object of facilitating in co-operation with my Department the export of British goods to the territories in which they are stationed. Specific cases are frequently reported where the work of the Trade Commissioners has brought about, or contributed materially to, the securing of important orders for British manufacturers.
