asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether any changes are in contemplation in the organisation and control of the Overseas Trade Department; and, if so, whether he is able to make any statement with regard to the future of that Department?

I would refer my hon. Friend to the statement made by the Chancellor of the Exchequer on the 1st March last. The large economies which have been effected have involved a considerable reorganisation of the Headquarter's Staff and some reorganisation of the Overseas Services. It is not, however, intended to alter the status or control of the Department.
