HC Deb 01 February 1949 vol 460 c216W
85. Mr. Austin

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the great public interest evinced in recent trade agreements concluded by his Department; and if he will consider broadcasting to the nation on the nature and prospects of such agreements and their bearing on the national economy.

Mr. Bottomley

In view of the interest to which my hon. Friend refers, my right hon. Friend has arranged to deal with this subject in public at an early date. He is not clear, however, that a broadcast is appropriate.
