§ 54. Mr. Day
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department how many invitation cards have this year been issued to prospective buyers from overseas to attend the British Industries Fair of 1937; how many acceptances have been received; and how this number compares with the last British Industries Fair held in this country?
§ Captain Euan Wallace (Secretary, Overseas Trade Department)
Over 103,000 cards have been issued to buyers overseas in connection with the British Industries Fair, 1937. The recipients are, however, not asked to reply, and in these circumstances I regret that no comparison with last year can be made on the lines indicated in the question.
§ Captain Wallace
Some people write and say that they are coming, but, as they are not asked to reply, no valid comparison is possible.
