§ Mr. GILLETT (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
The activities of my Department are mainly concerned with assisting commercial organisations and individual traders to extend their export business. In addition to watching over these individual developments it has been my concern to give the closest study to improving and strengthening the organisation of the Department, both at home and overseas. Concrete proposals for this purpose are now receiving consideration from His Majesty's Government.
§ Mr. GILLETT
I am afraid that my hon. Friend's question hardly comes under this question, but the matter has been carefully considered, though there has been no recent consideration.
