HC Deb 20 May 1974 vol 874 c3W
31. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Trade which countries, other than those of North America, he has identified as offering the best prospects for the expansion of United Kingdom exports because of their relative immunity to the effects of world energy shortages.

Mr. Deakins
