HC Deb 15 April 1965 vol 710 cc228-9W
41. Mr. Bryant Godman Irvine

asked the President of the Board of Trade what progress is being made in Operation Australex, with a view to increasing the flow of British exports to Australia.

Mr. Jay

The tour of industry by six British Trade Commissioners from Australia, known as Operation Australex, begins on 26th April and will last eight weeks. The Trade Commissioners will discuss export prospects in Australia with about 950 firms in twelve industries for which the Australian market appears to offer particularly good prospects.
