Appointments to the Export Council have at my right hon. Friend's request been made by the Council's chairman, Sir William McFadzean. He has told me that the Council will consist of representatives of Government Departments and of the sponsoring bodies, and individuals drawn from a wide variety of exporting industries who have been asked to serve in their personal capacities. I know that the chairman is considering further appointments and has my hon. Friend's point in mind.
