§ 55. Mr. Will Owen
asked the President of the Board of Trade what estimate he has made of the cost effectiveness of the work of the Agricultural Export Council; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody
It is too early to form an estimate about the cost effectiveness of the work of the British Agricultural Export Council which was set up only two years ago. We have, however, been sufficiently impressed by the energy with which this Council is attempting to expand exports of agricultural goods and services to make available to the Council grants for export promotion purposes over a three-year period.
