HC Deb 03 November 1955 vol 545 c1191
19. Sir I. Fraser

asked the President of the Board of Trade the increase in the volume of the export trade to Scandinavia noted in his statistics in the weeks immediately following the Trade Fair in Copenhagen.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

The Fair ended on the 16th October. Trade returns are compiled monthly, and the October figures will be available on the 21st of this month.

Captain Duncan

Is my right hon. Friend aware that in the case of one of the Scandinavian countries, Sweden, there has been a heavy increase in the import duties on many linen goods, and will he make representations to the Swedish Government to reduce them so that we can get our exports to that country?

Mr. Thorneycroft

Perhaps my hon. and gallant Friend will put that question in writing.
