HC Deb 29 April 1929 vol 227 c1275
3. Mr. KELLY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether any action has been taken by the Government of India to implement the recommendations of the Trade Mission sent out by the Indian Tariff Board to investigate and make proposals with a view to increasing the foreign market for Indian goods; and whether the Government are taking steps to appoint Indian trade commissioners at Alexandria, Mombasa, and Durban in accordnce with the trade mission's recommendation?


The Government of India are considering the question of appointing trade commissioners at the three places mentioned. The other recommendations of the Trade Mission are primarily for the consideration of the Indian mill industry. The Government of India reported at the end of last month that the industry had not yet approached them with any concrete proposals.
