HC Deb 28 April 1971 vol 816 cc415-6
30. Miss Joan Hall

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will provide space in British embassies abroad for the display of British products.

Mr. Channon

Yes, Sir; whenever suitable requests are made.

Miss Hall

I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. From my observations of our embassies and high commissions overseas, I believe we have wonderful sites, completely unused now, for the sale of British textiles which are attractive and a great boost to our textile industry. When some of my manufacturers write to him, will my hon. Friend consider their requests favourably?

Mr. Channon

I will certainly consider any specific proposal for the use of that kind of space.
