§ 31. Mr. Bellenger
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether any decision has yet been reached regarding the dispatch of a trade mission to Rumania?
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Oliver Stanley)
It has been decided to send a commercial mission to Rumania, but the detailed arrangements have not yet been made.
§ Mr. Bellenger
Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that this matter has been under the consideration of his Department for some weeks; and does he think that, in view of the serious economic demands 897 which have been made on Rumania by Germany, it is worth while sending a British trade mission now?
§ Mr. J. Morgan
Will the commission be empowered to negotiate on the output of the oilfields of Rumania on behalf of British interests?
