I would not talk about an economic crisis—I think that that would be wrong—but I agree that the expansion of our exports is necessary if we are to do all the things we wait to do in the world. The correspondence in the newspapers is being followed very closely by my right hon. Friend the Minister of State, and we are taking careful note of every point made in the columns of the newspapers. I think that the facilities available at the Board of Trade are as good as they are in any other country, although, obviously, they can always be improved. I am considering whether there could be advantage in extending the Dollar Exports Council system to other areas.
