§ 104. Mr. A. Lewis
asked the President of the Board of Trade what recent action he has taken towards increasing East-West trade.
§ Mr. Erroll
As the hon. Member is aware, our trade with Eastern Area countries is the subject of annual bilateral negotiations. These have been conducted so as to provide opportunities for a steady expansion of trade. In addition, my Department and commercial officers abroad have, as always, been helping British exporters to take advantage of these opportunities.
