§ 24. Mrs. Renée Short
asked the President of the Board of Trade to which Eastern European countries he intends to pay official visits in 1970.
§ Mrs. Short
May I suggest to my right hon. Friend that he would be very welcome in many Eastern European countries, and particularly at their trade fairs? If he can equal the increase in our trade with Roumania in the G.D.R., for example, by calling at the Leipzig Fair on the way, it will be a great advantage to both sides.
§ Mr. Scott-Hopkins
When the right hon. Gentleman makes his visit, if he makes any, to Eastern European countries and concludes trade agreements, will he ensure that the products covered by those agreements do not include sensitive items which will upset our own home market, such as agricultural goods flooding on to our market at prices well below ours?
