§ Sir J. Barlow
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware of the continued activity in East-West trade of the British Council for the Promotion of International Trade; and whether he will give an assurance that Her Majesty's Government's attitude to this body is unaltered.
§ Sir Anthony Eden
Yes. The British Council for the Promotion of International Trade is a Communist Front organisation. I welcome this opportunity to reiterate the advice which Her Majesty's Government have given and are giving to British firms not to associate themselves directly or indirectly with activities of this body.
