HC Deb 15 December 1964 vol 704 cc64-5W
Q17. Mr. Turton

asked the Prime Minister whether, following his discussions with the Prime Minister of Canada, he will make a statement on measures designed to increase British exports to Canada.

The Prime Minister

Both Governments are anxious to see an increase in British exports to Canada which would reduce the present heavy imbalance of trade. The Canadian Government can help by removing impediments to our exports. The main requirement, however, is for British exporters to take advantage of the opportunities which the prosperous and growing Canadian market presents. The Commonwealth Exports Council will play a big part in encouraging and helping exporters to do this, and exporters can call on all the Government services offered by the Trade Commissioners in Canada and the offices of the Board of Trade and the Export Credits Guarantee Department at home.
