§ Mr. Allaun
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether it was with his approval that a Board of Trade controller 56W spoke in his official capacity at a weekend conference organised by the Economic League in Porthcawl on 28th and 29th April.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
I understand that this conference was an industrial training course for foremen and supervisors. My prior approval was not necessary.
