HC Deb 14 January 1964 vol 687 c12W
58. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development what study he has made of the products of Aberdeen and other industrial centres in North-East Scotland in relation to the export trade potentialities between that area and industrial and importing centres in Northern and Western Europe, with a view to expanding exports and imports generally between those areas and so diminishing unemployment in North-East Scotland.

Mr. du Cann

The Board of Trade officers in Scotland are well informed about the industries of North-East Scotland and are ready to help them to develop their trade with all suitable markets, including those of Northern and Western Europe.
