HC Deb 09 November 1937 vol 328 c1571
38. Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to persuade the Finnish Government to increase purchases from Great Britain so as to bring them into proper relationship with the large total of purchases of Finnish produce by Great Britain?

Mr. Stanley

Certain trade matters have recently been the subject of informal discussion with the competent Finnish authorities. The value of exports from this country to Finland in the first nine months of this year have increased by about 40 per cent. as compared with the corresponding period of last year.

Lieut.-Colonel Heneage

Will my right hon. Friend watch the price of wood pulp, since it has a considerable importance for newsprint manufacturers?

Mr. Stanley

I should be obliged if the hon. and gallant Gentleman would put that question on the Paper.
