§ 20. Brigadier-General NATION
asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are being taken to ensure the maintenance of United Kingdom trade with El Salvador?
§ Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
The modus vivendi, which was to have terminated on 15th September, has been prolonged for a further three months. His Majesty's Government appreciate this valuable gesture of good will on the 2990 part of the Salvadorian authorities, and every endeavour will be made to set the commercial relations between the two countries on a more permanent and satisfactory basis.
