HC Deb 11 November 1947 vol 444 cc45-6W
67. Mr. Erroll

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will issue a short statement on the work done by British Export Trade Research Organisation since its foundation.

Mr. Bottomley

The British Export Trade Research Organisation is an independent organisation and is, therefore, alone in a position to make a comprehensive statement on its activities. But I understand that there is an increasing use by exporting interests of the services which it offers and that, in particular, it has executed for its members a number of commissions for scientific market research in countries overseas.
