HC Deb 21 November 1945 vol 416 c438
72. Lieut.-Colonel Dower

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has any statement to make regarding his discussions with the motor-car manufacturers and motor trades last week.

Mr. Ellis Smith

No, Sir.

Lieut.-Colonel Dower

Will the hon. Gentleman ask his right hon. and learned Friend whether increase in the export trade is not better achieved by co-operation than by waving the big stick?

Mr. Speaker

The hon. and gallant Member is not asking a question but is asking for the Minister's opinion.
