HC Deb 01 November 1957 vol 575 cc118-9W
Mr. Vane

asked the President of the Board of Trade why there was no official British Pavilion at the Twenty-Second International Trade Fair at Thessalonica, at which 15 foreign nations were represented.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The Government do not normally organise British pavilions at overseas trade fairs. In any event, inquiries showed that there would not have been enough support from United Kingdom manufacturers or their Greek agents to justify a separate national pavilion at this year's Fair. The products of a number of British manufacturers were, however, shown in the commercial sections of the Fair.
