HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 cc127-8W
46. Mr. T. Brown

asked the President of the Board of Trade how far steps have already been taken to explore the possibilities of opening up new markets both in the east and west for textile goods, especially in the non-dollar areas.

Mr. H. Strauss

We bring promptly to the notice of our exporters advice received from our officers overseas who are constantly exploring such possibilities. We are also taking every opportunity, both in our bilateral trade talks and in our day-to-day contacts with foreign Governments, to develop facilities for our exports of textile goods.
