HC Deb 24 March 1930 vol 237 c8
41. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he has any knowledge of any recent schemes organised by British manufacturers and traders for advertising British goods abroad; and whether His Majesty's Government have made any contribution towards them?

Mr. GILLETT (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

Certain schemes for advertising British goods abroad have been brought to my attention. My Department has been, and still is, ready to give any assistance in its power to well-considered schemes put forward by representative bodies but has not made, and is not proposing to make any financial contribution.
