HC Deb 13 March 1958 vol 584 cc78-9W
86. Mr. Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade what assistance he gave to British businessmen to exhibit at the Leipzig Fair; what observers were present from his Department; and what was the nature of the report he has received on this fair.

Sir D. Eccles

My Department is always ready to make available to interested businessmen any information it has about the Leipzig or other trade fairs. No officials attended the recent Fair, as the Soviet authorities did not grant the necessary visas, and I have not received a report on the Fair.
