HC Deb 15 December 1938 vol 342 cc2217-8W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department Department whether he will state the amount of the annual propaganda grant from the Exchequer to the Travel and Industrial Development Association, and the reasons for increasing the grant?

Mr. R. S. Hudson

I would refer the hon. Member to my reply to the question put by my hon. Friend the Member for Blackpool (Mr. J. R. Robinson) on 12th December. The grant has been increased in order to assist the association to expand its important work of promoting travel to and industrial development in the United Kingdom, and in order to encourage wider support of this work by commercial interests at home.
