HC Deb 21 January 1986 vol 90 c148W
Mr. Michael Forsyth

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if it has yet been decided who should replace Lord Jellicoe when his term of office as Chairman of the British Overseas Trade Board expires in March of the current year.

Mr. Brittan

It is my intention to appoint Sir James Cleminson as chairman of the British Overseas Trade Board with effect from 16 July 1986. Meanwhile Lord Jellicoe has accepted an extension of his current appointment as chairman until 15 July. I am most grateful to Lord Jellicoe for this, and for his distinguished service in the post over the last three years.
