HC Deb 13 March 1968 vol 760 c290W
56. Mr. John Fraser

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to help smaller and medium size firms to sell products overseas through the Overseas Marketing Corporation; and what he estimates will be the volume of the Corporation's export trade in 1968.

Mr. Crosland

As I announced to the House on 2nd November last, the activities of the Overseas Marketing Corporation are left to the commercial judgment of its Board of Directors. It is too early to assess the Corporation's prospects for 1968.—[Vol. 753, c.11–13.]
