§ Lord O'Hagan
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether they are satisfied that the South-Western Regional Office of the British Overseas Trade Board can adequately serve the South-West by holding clinics in Plymouth and Truro every month.
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Foreign and Commonwealth Office (Lord Trefgarne)
The South-West Regional Office of the British Overseas Trade Board has contact with over 450 exporters in Devon and Cornwall. Clinics are a cost effective means of maintaining these contacts and assisting exporters, but are complementary to visits to individual exporters and telephone discussions of, and correspondence on, particular problems and prospects.
