§ 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.
