HC Deb 17 February 1959 vol 600 c175
12. Sir L. Plummer

asked the President of the Board of Trade what will be the expenditure of his Department on the British Trade Fair in Lisbon next May.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

About £14,000.

Sir L. Plummer

Will the Minister or his right hon. Friend make clear that that expenditure is of a purely commercial kind and must not be regarded as an open or implied support for the tyrannical and terrorist Government of Dr. Salazar?

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The Board of Trade stand will be devoted to a display of consumer goods.
