§ 29. Mr. LIDDALL (for Mr. GRANVILLE GIBSON)
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department what are the specific objects of the visit of the Government trade delegation to Poland; and why there is no representative of the leather industry in the delegation?
§ Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE
The Mission has gone to Poland for discussions with Polish industries and institutions with a view to ascertaining in what directions United Kingdom exports to Poland can be increased. It is expected that negotiations for a Trade Agreement will be undertaken shortly after the return of the Mission. The interests of the United Kingdom leather trade will be watched by the delegate nominated by the Federation of British Industries and by the officials attached to the Mission.
