HC Deb 20 May 1968 vol 765 cc40-1W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state his plans for increasing export trade between Scotland and Scandinavia.

Mr. Dell

The Board of Trade and the Export Council for Europe offer a wide range of services to help firms wishing to export to Scandinavia. Increasing numbers of firms in Scotland are taking advantage of this. Scottish firms are participating in the British Trade Drive currently taking place in Denmark, including the British Engineering Exhibition to be held in Copenhagen from 10th-14th June. Scottish firms will also be well represented at the British Week in Stockholm this autumn. A selling mission organised by the Scottish Thistle Export Group visited Sweden and Denmark last March and was well satisfied with the results.
