HC Deb 26 January 1937 vol 319 c739
74. Mr. Sutcliffe

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether the British Government were giving any support to the development of British trade in Turkey; and, if so, on what lines?

Captain Wallace

Yes, Sir, the Government are making efforts in various directions to co-ordinate the interests of British trade with the planned economic development which is now taking place in Turkey. For instance, the Export Credits Guarantee Department is cooperating with Messrs. Brasserts in the erection of an iron and steel plant valued at about £2,750,000.
