§ Mr. Will Owen
asked the President of the Board of Trade what changes have taken place in the chairmanship of the European Export Council; what programme for the development of this work is contemplated; and whether he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mason
Sir Hector McNeil has completed his term as Chairman of the Export Council for Europe. Mr. G. V. K. Burton is acting as Chairman until the Viscount Caldecote assumes office in April. The council has a varied and imaginative programme of export promotion to assist British exports to Europe. The main item in 1970 is the trade drive "Britain in Finland, 1970".
