61. Mr. JANNER

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he can make any statement with regard to the progress of the Levant Fair at Tel Aviv, Palestine, which opened on 26th April; and whether he has any information with regard to the orders for British goods obtained there?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)

According to the preliminary reports which have reached the Department of Overseas Trade, the British Pavilion is attracting a great deal of notice, and the prospects of satisfactory business are consequently encouraging. It is understood that the attendance on the opening days exceeded anticipation.
