HC Deb 11 January 1977 vol 923 cc472-3W
Dr. Glyn

asked the Secretary of State for Trade what representations he has received from members of the British Photographic Export Group whose export promotions will be severely handicapped by the reduction in the allocation of funds; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. Meacher

I have received one letter from a member of the group and the secretary of the group has written to the Chairman of the British Overseas Trade Board about reductions in the joint venture programme for 1977–78. The British Photographic Export Group sponsored one joint venture during 1976–77 and is expected to sponsor one during 1977–78. The group's joint venture activity is not therefore being reduced. Both representations are being answered in these terms.
