§ 40. Captain CROOKSHANK
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he receives regular trade reports from our Consular representatives in French West Africa; and, if so, whether he proposes to publish any regarding the present state of the countries concerned?
§ Mr. GILLETT
Trade reports are received from time to time from British Consular representatives in French West Africa. Two such reports upon general commercial conditions have recently been received, and consideration is now being given to the best means of bringing them to the notice of British firms.
