HC Deb 11 February 1965 vol 706 c116W
52. Mr. Ensor

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that there are firms prepared to assist in market research overseas for individual companies; and whether he will set up a Government agency to help smaller companies to make greater use of the facilities provided.

Mr. Redhead

The British National Export Council is introducing a scheme to assist collective market research overseas undertaken on behalf of sectors of industry. I hope that smaller companies will make full use of this through their trade associations and chambers of commerce.
