HC Deb 23 July 1973 vol 860 cc270-1W
Mr. Crouch

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has had concerning London's trade exhibition facilities; and whether he is satisfied that they meet the requirements for trade promotion now that Great Britain is in the enlarged market of the EEC.

Sir G. Howe

I have received a number of such representations. London's facilities cannot be looked at in isolation and the new National Exhibition Centre near Birmingham will provide an important and timely addition to United Kingdom exhibition facilities. But I will continue to look carefully at all proposals for additional facilities in the London area.
