The Earl of Dalkeith
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when it is next planned to have a meeting in the United Kingdom with the Anglo-German Economic Committee; and whether he will arrange for this to be held in Edinburgh so that the West German Government trade experts can inspect Scotland's industrial potential.
§ Mr. Padley
The Anglo-German Economic Committee normally meets twice a year alternately in Germany and in the United Kingdom. A meeting was held in London last week so that the next meeting in the United Kingdom might be expected to take place about the middle of 1966. The place of meeting will be considered nearer the time and we will bear in mind what the hon. Member has suggested.
