My noble Friend spent nine days in Sweden discussing ways of increasing trade and tourism between our two countries. He was accompanied by a representative of the Scottish Council (Development and Industry) which is now following up some 40 inquiries directly resulting from the visit. He was also accompanied, for part of the time, by a representative of the Scottish Tourist Board, which is now giving consideration to some 15 suggestions for increasing the tourist trade. These are in addition to the many inquiries which could be dealt with on the spot.
