HC Deb 16 July 1959 vol 609 cc44-5W
Mr. Lewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the United Kingdom's participation in capital construction in Yugoslavia is much below its industrial capacity; and what action he proposes to take to find ways of increasing exports from this country to Yugoslavia of capital goods, in view of Yugoslavia's desire to import these goods.

Sir D. Eccles
