25. Mr. HANNON

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if his attention has been called to the proposed organisation of an Empire shopping week at Singapore in May; and if any steps will be taken to secure a representation suitable to Malayan consumption during the exhibition?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

Yes, Sir. His Majesty's Trade Commissioner at Singapore, who also represents the Department of Overseas Trade in Malaya, and has a close knowledge of that market, has accepted the chairmanship of the committee formed to organise, as part of the programme, an exhibition of British goods, from the 24th to 30th May.


Will they receive every possible assistance from the Overseas Trade Department on this side?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

Yes, Sir.
