HC Deb 31 October 1957 vol 575 c96W
102. Mr. Peart

asked the President of the Board of Trade what measures he is taking to improve Anglo-Canadian trade.

Mr. Vaughan-Morgan

The recent talks which my right hon. Friends had with Canadian Ministers greatly encouraged us and strengthened our faith in the prospects for Anglo-Canadian trade. The communiqué issued at the end of those talks describes a number of ways in which it is hoped to improve trade with Canada. In particular, we look forward to welcoming next month Mr. Gordon Churchill, the Canadian Minister of Trade and Commerce, who will be leading a high-level Canadian Trade Mission to this country. In conjunction with the Canadian High Commissioner and the Dollar Exports Council we are arranging for this Mission to make extensive visits to our industrial centres and to inform themselves at first hand of the developments made by United Kingdom industry since the war.
