HC Deb 05 June 1962 vol 661 c33W
26. Mr. Prior

asked the President of the Board of Trade what was the purpose of his official visit to Poland; and if he will make a statement.

Sir K. Joseph

My right hon. Friend's visit to Poland from 11th to 18th June is a goodwill visit at the invitation of the Polish Government in return for the goodwill visit which two Polish Ministers paid to the United Kingdom last October. He will visit the Trade Fair at Poznan where a record number of British exporters are exhibiting this year. It will also provide an opportunity for an informal exchange of views on Anglo-Polish trade.
