HC Deb 07 June 1957 vol 571 c164W
Captain Kerby

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes taking to ensure that the British electrical industry, as the nation's major exporter, obtains the fullest facilities for exhibiting at future fairs at Hanover; and if, in view of the fact that bookings have to be lodged by the end of this month, and all future exhibitors must contribute an interest-free loan of 170 marks per square metre of spaced booked, he will now make a statement.

Mr. Walker-Smith

It is for the British electrical industry to take the initiative in this matter.
