HC Deb 15 March 1967 vol 743 c96W
57. Mr. John Hynd

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that everything possible is being done to facilitate the development of exports to Latin American markets, particularly in such matters as steel and similar plant, having regard to the current plans for new capital investment in Latin America; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Jay

My Department is very much alive to the opportunities for trade with Latin America. Two Board of Trade Ministers have recently visited the area, and ways of developing our exports are under constant study by my Department and by the British National Export Council.

The facilities of the Board of Trade and E.C.G.D. are available to our manufacturers of steel works plant.
