HC Deb 27 January 1948 vol 446 c130W
91. Mr. M. Lindsay

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will arrange for an increase in secretarial facilities for the Export Promotion Department of the Board of Trade, in view of the fact that much of their correspondence has to be sent out of London for typing, which results in unnecessary delay, sometimes amounting to weeks, in dealing with British exporters' inquiries.

Mr. Bottomley

No correspondence from the Export Promotion Department is now being sent out of London for typing. Delays in typing have already been reduced to three days, and steps have been taken to reduce them still further.
