HC Deb 16 December 1952 vol 509 cc1175-6
13. Sir H. Williams

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will arrange to place in the Library a copy of the British Electrical and Allied Manufacturers Catalogue, 1952, in view of his official commendatory message which appears as a preface to this effort to secure export trade.

Mr. Mackeson

I understand that a copy has been placed in the Library.

Mr. Bottomley

In view of the fact that the Minister thinks that this is an excellent catalogue, will he consider drawing the attention of other industries to the way in which it is presented—in other words, the language of the country in which it is hoped to sell the goods?

Mr. Mackeson

Yes. I hope that hon. Members on both sides of the House will look at this catalogue. I should like to pay a tribute to my predecessor for his efforts to get this sort of publication issued in four or five languages.
