HC Deb 18 April 1967 vol 745 cc58-9W
56. Mr. Maxwell

asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs what steps he is taking to improve commercial information in Hong Kong in support of the United Kingdom export drive; and whether he will make a statement.

Mrs. Hart

In the past we have relied on the willing help of the Hong Kong Government Information Services but we realise this is not the best arrangement for commercial publicity and we are strengthening the staff of the United Kingdom Trade Commissioner so that additional information work can be undertaken. We intend to consider whether further expansion is necessary after we have gained experience of the working of the new arrangements.
