HC Deb 27 February 1941 vol 369 cc653-4W
Mr. Liddall

asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether his Department is helping to organise the London fashions collection display in South America?

Mr. Johnstone

My Department is responsible for the organisation of this display and has received the full support of the Export Council. The export groups, designers and manufacturers concerned with the production of the materials, the designs and the accessories are to be congratulated upon their initiative, and I take this opportunity of publicly acknowledging the sympathetic interest shown by the representatives in London of the Governments of Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay. Expert opinion is satisfied after a pre-view of the collection that it merits a great success.
