§ Captain DOWER
asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department what arrangements have been made for the representation of the British cotton industry at the forthcoming Levant Fair at Tel-Aviv; and whether, in view of the importance of the Near Eastern market and the competition therein, he will ensure that this opportunity is used to the best advantage?
§ Lieut.-Colonel COLVILLE
In order to facilitate the exhibition of United Kingdom goods at the forthcoming Levant Fair at Tel-Aviv, the Federation of British Industries has undertaken the work of organising a British Pavilion. I am informed that special steps are being taken to bring this important opportunity to the notice of firms in the Lancashire cotton trade.
