§ 38. Mr. Ellis Smith
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he can make a statement on the arrangements that have been made or are proposed to enable this country to be represented in the best possible manner at the 1939 New York World's Fair?
§ Mr. R. S. Hudson (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
I would refer the hon. Member to the answer given to my hon. and learned Friend the Member for Leicester East (Mr. Lyons) on 1st December.
43. Miss Ward
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he will arrange for the exhibition, recently held at 10, Downing Street, of quilting, done by miners' wives in the Special Areas, with the consent of those interested, to be shown in the British section of the New York exhibition?
§ Mr. Hudson
Consideration has already been given to the possibility of including an exhibit of quilting made in the Special Areas, but I regret that considerations of space preclude this.
Would it not be possible to reconsider that decision, in view of the effect on the Special Areas, and for the encouragement of miners' wives.
§ Mr. Hudson
The matter cannot be reconsidered on account of considerations of space, but it is always open to anyone interested to have an exhibit in the commercial section of the World's Fair.
