§ 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.
