§ 1. Mr. Cary
asked the President of the Board of Trade the special steps which are being taken to stimulate the marketing and sale of British goods in the United 775 States of America, and will he consider the advisability of approaching the Government of the United States of America with a view to obtaining modifications in any existing trade agreement, or concessions in a new one, which would increase the demand for British goods in America, particularly in woollens and worsteds, cottons and linens, leather goods, pottery and glass?
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Lyttelton)
All possible encouragement is being given to the marketing and sale of British goods in the United States of America, both by export groups and through Government facilities such as those provided by the Department of Overseas Trade and Export Credits Guarantee Department. The necessary materials and labour are made available for such exports to the utmost possible extent. The suggestion in the second part of my hon. Friend's Question is not being lost sight of.
