§ Mr. Attlee
(by Private Notice) asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether any agreement has been reached with Denmark regarding increased purchases by that country from the United Kingdom?
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
Yes, Sir. Certain trade matters have recently been the subject of discussion with the competent Danish authorities. I am glad to be able to inform the House that the Danish Government have now made an offer, which has been accepted by His Majesty's Government, to provide facilities for increasing by about Kr.20 million the imports of a wide range of United Kingdom goods including coal and textiles.
