HC Deb 16 December 1952 vol 509 c146W
20. Mr. de Freitas

asked the President of the Board of Trade what facilities he provides for manufacturers who wish to undertake market research in Canada and the United States of America.

Mr. Mackeson

In addition to the general assistance which was described in the answer given to the hon. Member on 24th April, special facilities are available in the case of Canada and the United States whereby the Export Credits Guarantee Department guarantees a part of the cost of market surveys. Permission to remit the dollars needed to pay for such work is normally granted readily under Foreign Exchange Control regulations.
