HC Deb 16 May 1963 vol 677 c176W
Mr. Pentland

asked the President of the Board of Trade what support he gave to the British trade mission, led by the vice-chairman of the London Chamber of Commerce, on a buy-and-sell visit to Russia; and if chambers of commerce in the North-East of England were invited to take part in the visit.

Mr. Green

Arrangements for this visit were made by the London Chamber of Commerce and the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce on their own initiative. I had a meeting with the mission shortly before its departure.
