HC Deb 07 April 1930 vol 237 cc1745-6
26. Mr. HANNON

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if his attention has been called to the pending publication of an electrification law in Yugoslavia; if he is aware that this law contemplates certain concessions for the attraction of foreign capital such as freedom from taxation and reduced railway rates, as well as monopolies over specified areas; and if encouragement will be given to the British electrical industry to participate in such new development as may take place?


The answers to the first and second parts of the question are in the affirmative. With regard to the third part of the question, the hon. Member can rest assured that everything possible will be done with a view to obtaining orders for British goods.


Will the hon. Gentleman communicate with the Commercial Attaché at Belgrade on the subject in order to keep the Department in touch with any developments that may take place?


If the hon. Member has any point on which he thinks it would be an advantage for me to do so, I will willingly consider it.
