HC Deb 13 May 1946 vol 422 cc149-50W
107. Sir P. Hannon

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has considered the illustrated booklet "Sweden as an Important Market," recently issued by the Federation of Swedish Wholesale Merchants and Importers, a copy of which has been sent him; and if the value of the Swedish market from the point of view of British export trade will be communicated to British industrial and trade organisations.

Mr. Marquand:

This booklet was received by the Board of Trade and has been carefully considered. I have myself visited Sweden recently, and am fully alive to the importance of the Swedish market for many classes of British exports, and every opportunity has been taken to investigate the possibilities of that market and to bring them to the notice of interested British industrial and trade organisations In that connection, I would refer the hon. Member to the article on "Prosperous Sweden as a Field for United Kingdom's Exports." published in the Board of Trade Journal on 6th April last. The British Export Trade Research Organisation has also appointed one of its first two overseas representatives to Stockholm.
