HC Deb 17 April 1972 vol 835 cc8-9W
52. Mr. Dalyell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what encouragement he is giving to the British Fair in Peking in 1973.

Mr. John Davies

My Department, in association with the Sino British Trade Council, is actively sponsoring the British Industrial Technology exhibition, which will take place in Peking from 26th March to 5th April, 1973. Firms with suitable products are being encouraged to take part. The financial and other assistance which my Department is providing will I am sure be an important factor in further stimulating the already considerable interest being shown by British industry in the exhibition.
