HC Deb 28 April 1976 vol 910 c111W
18. Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his estimate of the effect of Command Paper No. 6440 "Cash limits on Public Expenditure" upon the scale and quality of British commercial representation abroad over the next five years; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hattersley

Cash limits have been fixed for 1976–77 only and, at this stage, we do not expect them to have any significant effect on our commercial representation overseas.
