HC Deb 31 July 1934 vol 292 c2464W

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he has yet received a report in respect of the results of the Levant Fair recently held at Tel-Aviv; and whether it is a favourable one?

Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE

I have received from the Federation of British Industries a very favourable report on the results of the recent Levant Fair at Tel-Aviv. The report, copies of which may be obtained from the offices of the Federation, states that practically every exhibitor in the British Pavilion, and most of those exhibiting British goods in other pavilions, expressed themselves as being thoroughly satisfied with business done at the fair and with the openings made for future business. The official report which is being prepared by the British Commercial Agent in Palestine, will, on its receipt, be published in the Board of Trade Journal.
