HC Deb 20 January 1953 vol 510 cc20-1
28. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is now in a position to make a statement with regard to the talks he has had with certain industrialists and trades union representatives concerning long-term export problems

Mr. R. A. Butler

The purpose of my meeting on 17th December was to have an informal discussion on export problems. There was, of course, no question of the meeting arriving at agreed decisions, but we had a most useful exchange of views.
