asked the Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether the seat allotted to the Dominion of Canada on the Board of Governors of the Imperial Institute, Kensington, which according to the annual report of the Institute for 1938 was vacant, has now been filled; and if so, by whom?
I have been asked to reply on behalf of the Secretary of the Department of Overseas Trade, who is the responsible Minister for the Imperial Institute. The vacancy in question has not yet been filled.
Is it likely to be filled in the near future, in view of the importance of encouraging the Dominions to take part in this work?
I cannot give my hon. Friend any information on that subject, but we should very much welcome it if the Government of Canada were willing to co-operate.
