HC Deb 23 February 1968 vol 759 c215W
Mr. Gwynfor Evans

asked the President of the Board of Trade in what ways have Wales and Scotland been projected in the British Week trade fairs overseas held since 1961.

Mr. Darling

Welsh and Scottish features have been included in British Weeks in the same way as material representative of England and Northern Ireland. Display material, which is distributed to retailers in large quantities, includes posters, figurines and heraldic devices exemplifying both Wales and Scotland. Scottish bands, pipers and dancers have performed at most Weeks. During the British Week in Denmark there was a visit by the Lord Provost of Edinburgh and a special Exhibition in Copenhagen by the Scottish Thistle Export Group. At Toronto there was a visit by the band of the Welsh Guards and a display of Welsh painting.
