HC Deb 24 March 1965 vol 709 cc99-100W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware of the success achieved by the Aberdeen Exhibition held in London in March, 1965; and, in view of the need for publicising and developing the trade and industry of Aberdeen, if he will take steps, in conjunction with the Aberdeen Chamber of Commerce and other relevant bodies, to support the trade fair of Scottish products to be held in Aberdeen in 1966.

Mr. Darling

The Board of Trade will be glad to discuss with the organisers their plans for the trade fair to be held in Aberdeen in 1966. It is not, however, the practice of the Board to provide financial support for trade fairs in the United Kingdom.
