HC Deb 12 May 1931 vol 252 c1008W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department if he is now able to state whether he has received from the British official directors of the Suez Canal Company information about the probable requirements of materials for the Suez Canal during the coming year; and whether they propose to assist British export trade by visiting the chambers of commerce in suitable industrial areas and explaining to the members how orders for the requirements of stores for the canal may be obtained?


It will take some time to obtain from the directors of the Suez Canal Company, the information which I promised to obtain on 4th May. Consideration of the present matter must, therefore, be postponed until such information is available.
