HC Deb 27 June 1938 vol 337 c1518
30. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether it is proposed to publish a biennial report this year on economic conditions in Germany by the commercial counsellor to His Majesty's Embassy in Berlin?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

No, Sir.

Mr. Bellenger

Will the right hon. Gentleman give any reason for that, in view of the fact that the last report was greatly appreciated by commercial and other interests in this country?

Mr. Hudson

Yes, Sir. These economic reports are not published at fixed intervals, but in certain cases as occasion requires. I do not think that this is a particularly good year in which to have a report on Germany, but I will certainly consider the advisability of publishing a report next year.
