HC Deb 29 March 1934 vol 287 c2135

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he can make a statement on the recent trade mission to Poland; if he has yet received reports from the mission; and, if so, whether these reports indicate the possibility of increasing sales of British goods to Poland?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

The delegates of the various industries represented on the mission have reported to the organisations by whom they were nominated. I have already received certain of these reports, and taken in conjunction with the information given to me by the chairman and the official members of the mission, I am glad to say that a number of possibilities are indicated whereby United Kingdom exports to Poland should be increased.


Can the hon. and gallant Member say what the possibilities are with regard to herring?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE
