HC Deb 31 March 1993 vol 222 cc233-4W
Mrs. Ann Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what is his policy in relation to the appointment to the staff of British embassies of individuals with experience in manufacturing industry.

Mr. Goodlad

We attach great importance to strengthening the diplomatic service's links with industry and to our programme of interchanges with the private sector. It is also our policy to recruit as locally engaged commercial officers business men with appropriate experience, including those from the manufacturing industry.
