asked the President of the Board of Trade what conclusions he has come to as a result of his discussions on whether changes are desirable in the existing arrangements for training in the mechanics of export and on whether action is required by Her Majesty's Government to encourage people to make the fullest use of them; and if he will make a statement.
Is my hon. Friend aware of the importance of keeping facilities for this sort of training under continuous review in relation, particularly, to demand, especially as, unfortunately, the mechanics of export are not becoming any simpler as time goes on?
My hon. Friend can be sure that we take a serious view of this, and that consultations are covering a very comprehensive review of existing facilities, and what further steps may be necessary.
